    Allietare! - Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Mystery Quilt

    This year's mystery quilt has begun! The name of the quilt is Allietare! and it was inspired by Bonnie's trip to Italy.

    Here's a place for all of us to talk about it and compare fabric and notes on our work in progress. The link to Bonnie's blog for the instructions is here:

    http://quiltville.blogspot.com

    For those of you who are on Facebook, you can also follow along with thousands of other quilters on her page called Quiltville Open Studio. A link to that page is here:

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/291023511046957

    If you are new to this mystery quilt, please remember there are no dumb questions. We are all here to help.

    Looking forward to lots of fun and sharing again this year. This is going to be a lot of fun.

    I am really looking forward to doing my second MQ from Bonnie. I have been quilting for more than 20 years, but the MQ last year taught me so much. Mostly it taught me to be patient and make sure my pieces were done correctly before going on to the next step. I love the way Bonnie give us certain amount of steps to do. I found I had no trouble keeping up with the steps. Looking forward to participating again this year and seeing everyone's progress.

    Here are my fabrics, didn't even bother with the color cards. After seeing lots of people using green instead of gray I pulled a green one and a denim blue one. I haven't decided which I like best, feel free to tell me which you prefer! All from stash and I even have a backing with these colors in a paisley design on a light background.
    DH said it wasn't that I saved by using stash, I just "pre-invested" LOL!!!

    Geri, go back & read again, she states she's NOT using accuquilt, however, she will give be giving that info when the time comes for those wanting to use it. So, jump in! We'll all have a great time!

    Have my paint chips, will be meeting up with BFF from Florida on Wednesday to shop for missing fabric, like the grey!

    I really like the colors this year! Going to come out pretty, I'm sure!

    QuiltingVagabond, I'm watching what responses you get. I may substitute for the gray, as well. I don't have a lot of gray, I like the colors you pulled. I want to work out of stash this year. I did that year before last and was thrilled with my quilt. Last year, I went a bought new. I like it, but somehow feel a sense of accomplishment by using what I already have.

    I haven't pulled my fabric yet. One thing I am going to do with my neutrals is wait until she gives some cutting instructions. I have a lot of 2" strips left from last year that I may be able to use. Looking forward to Black Friday!

    I am on the fence. Her quilts are made of so many little pieces and that is not my favorite. I have lots of those colors except for the gray.

    I'm not loving Bonnie's colours this year and I don't generally like scrappy quilts, although some of the combos I've seen are looking pretty tempting. My plan is to go my own way this time around. Here's what I've pulled from my stash so far. I have teal (Bonnie's gold), purple (red), brown (black), grey (grey), and cream (neutral).

    The green looks better against the black. But a lighter blue could represent the sky.

    I decided to work on this this year. I'm thinking of switching out the gold and red and switch in blue and purple instead. I need to buy some gray for it. Otherwise I will be using 2 prices of fabric. I just hope it's not a star design. Then my choices may not work. I plan to make and keep this quilt for my bed. I'm excited about doing this quilt. I'll be a week behind, since I have other things I have to do 1st. Oh well off to wash and iron my fabric.

    Bonnie's colors this year are EXACTLY what I selected for Orca Bay. I will find something different for this year's mystery. I saw another lady who swapped black for Bonnie's neutrals and neutral for Bonnie's blacks. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Might be interesting.
    Enjoy your day,

    Aunt Jo, The grey is a Constant - only one piece of fabric. Of course, you can do it scrappy if you want - no quilt police here!!! Your colors look wonderful, I had lots of reds, but they are not the right color (too much orange), I'm going to have to get more reds, another darker gold, and wouldn't you know I had a perfect grey, but only 1 1/4 yard instead of 1 1/2 yard. Darn!

    I like the green. Much better contrast than the blue.

    Last year was my first BH mystery. I learned so much and loved the process. I substituted some of the colors and love my quilt. This year I love her colors so will be using those except might use green for the gray. Someone is mailing out the color chips tomorrow since I don't live near a Lowes. This is going to be so much fun!!
    This quilt really calls to me since my DGD's name is Allie!

    I am still on the fence but think I will use a grayish or olive green for the gray if I jump in.
