Allietare Countdown

I didn't realize that the beginning of the Quiltville mystery is this Friday! Are you sewing along with the mystery gang?
The first step is revealed on Friday morning, and I finally corralled all my fabrics. I am going totally "by the book" this time and using the colours that Bonnie recommends. My collection looks a little boring to me, but I know that Bonnie's patterns always have a million pieces and it will be anything but boring!


The black fabrics are from my civil war fabric scrapbox, the reds are leftover from Confluence, many of the golds are leftover from Angel Solstice, and the neutrals are just always kicking around here. The greys are all new. I couldn't pick just one grey as recommended, but they all "read" fairly similar in value. 
I'm calling it good to go. 
Two more sleeps!

  1. Looks like you are all ready to go. Have fun! I hope it is going to be another great mystery quilt. I'm going to be good and finish up ongoing projects this year. Watching everyone else will be lots of fun though.

  3. Yes I have to decide on the final line up too. I am following her colours except for the grey...I am thinking of putting in an emerald green instead. It will match the backing that I already have. Do you remember a story of a backing I made that was too small for the quilt...well it has a wine bottle theme and would be perfect fore Allietare!!!

  7. I wasn't going to participate, but last week changed my mind. I just had to buy my grey and a few black fat quarters to pad my stash a bit.

  11. So fun to follow along! I measured it all out to do half, but I've yet took shop my stash. I'm hoping I have enough of the proper colors. I'm having trouble coming up with my own alternative pull........

  13. I varied the colors just a bit. I'm using yardage again this year. It just works better for me.
