"Allietare!"

   Yes, Allietare.......that's the name of Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Winter Mystery.  Have you ever done one of her mysteries??  This will be my 4th.  I resisted the previous mysteries as I am one of those people that don't like not knowing how things will look in the end, how will my fabrics look in the mystery arrangement etc.   "Easy Street" cured me of the worrying...  I jumped in with both feet and have never looked back.

     So, here is my pull/fabrics for "Allietare".


So...Bonnie makes "paint chip" suggestions.....I literally went the next morning after I saw her post and picked up my paint chips.....and for my friend Carolyn :)


Here's my grey.  Bonnie's suggestion was for one "constant" grey.  


My red, black and gold..............



And my neutral.....  In past years I've used text prints or tan/neutrals.  I decided this year to use an ivory grunge type fabric that I bought this morning at my local quilt shop.  We are suggested to get 5-1/2 yards so I really wanted something low key.


Below are my previous 3 mystery quilts..............LOVE, LOVE, LOVE each one!!!

Looks like a good kind of mystery. I've never made a mystery quilt, in fact, I don't even think I'd heard of them until quite recently on blog reading.
