Allietare - Monday Mystery linkup Part 5

Link up time for Part 5 of Bonnie Hunter's Allietare Mystery Quilt. Follow this link back  http://bit.ly/1UdyGZq to see everyone else's progress

I am far from finished this step. I hadn't finished all my Step 1 HST so had to play catch up on those to start this step. So many of the sub units are still on the ironing board waiting to be ironed. The week isn't done yet though, LOL.  

Part 3 with it's gold and neutral 4 patches is completed.  This was where I started the mystery because it was the clue that was live when I came home from holiday

Part 4 (long, oh so long) is completed.  I love these little bow tie type units.  I think they would make a great border for some sampler blocks I have sitting around.

You know when you're making a mystery quilt there's always a fabric choice that you think "hmmmm, I wonder how that's going to work out"?  Well with Allietare mine is the grey.  So because I'm contemplating my choice of grey fabric here's a grey photo from my recent holiday.  It's taken at the Koutu Boulders in the Hokianga Harbour on Northland's west coast.

Off to sew...

Allietare - just starting out

I've just come back from a road trip so I'm  late starting on Bonnie Hunter's 2015 mystery quilt, which is called Allietare.   I love making Bonnie's mystery quilts over the holidays and had lots of fun on Grand Illusion last year.  I have my fabrics ready to go for Allietare so tomorrow I think I'll make a start with Clue 3 and then work from from there on new clues and catch-up.


Even though I haven't made my first cut yet I wanted to link up and say "I'm in".  Check out Bonnie's blog and the link up to see the progress other participants are making here

This is going to be fun!

My sewing at the moment seems to be focused on a couple of quilt-a-long projects I've joined. For a while now I've wanted to use u...
