Allietare! is pieced and awaiting the inner border!

Allietare! is pieced and awaiting the inner border!  I need to shop my stash for a gorgeous gold.  I got all the rows together and realized I didn't have the last block.  I had to make one, but it went together quickly.  Luckily new scraps arrived to the scrap basket to make my decision easy.  I didn't have to worry about if any of the colors were close to any of the others. 


I this this pattern, designed by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville's Quips & Snips, is one of my favorite quilts yet.  I LOVE the colors!  I'm not sure if I'll go with the black outer border that she did, but I know the perfect one is waiting to be discovered in my stash.



After I posted this I realized that the 2nd star on the left had one of the yellow four patches turned the wrong way.  Don't worry, it has been fixed.

In the above photo I was so excited that this top made it this far that I forgot to sew on the bottom right corner piece.  Whew! I found it in another scrap basket.  Good thing, because all four corners are the same fabric and I didn't have much of that scrap to spare.

I just LOVE it!




Winter Mystery 2015 - Allietare!


I'm linking up with Jo at Jo's Country Junction for the UFO Challenge.  I'd like to get this quilt finished by the time Bonnie's new book comes out in September.  Jo will be having a link-up party every Wednesday on her blog to show our progress.
