"Allietare Mystery"

Step 1 of the Allietare Mystery on Bonnie Hunter's blog went live on Friday morning after Thanksgiving.  I've been waiting a while for this and was happy to see step 1 was fun and easy. 294 half square triangles.....Who doesn't like HST's?????    I love making them!

My "constant" grey looks very much like a men's suit type of grey, which I love, and my "neutral" is a grunge type of cream.  I'm doing a constant "cream" as well because I didn't have a lot of variety in my stash.  The only thing I did have to buy for this mystery was my neutral!!!!!  THAT makes me very happy because I'm one of those "I need to use up what I have" type of gals and this year I actually did!!!

Quite by accident I found myself reading blogs yesterday afternoon and saw that Bonnie herself was going to be doing her webcam so I sat down and watched, finished up a few small blocks for another sew along and then sat and sewed up my step 1 units.  NO, I am not done but I HAD to press a few just to see how I like the look and then finished sewing.....  I'm having lunch with a friend today so I'll press open the remainder HOPEFULLY this afternoon.

Hope you are all enjoying your mystery......Thanks Bonnie for doing this year after year.

I like making HSTs, too; I did mine the same way you did. I love your grey.

Starting a Bonnie mystery is like coming home. I thought the quilt cam from Buck Mountain was fun. I remember when we were all on dial up and everything worked like that :) Sharyn
