Allietare--First Clue

I got my first clue done for Bonnie Hunter's Allietare mystery quilt. 

You can get the introduction here and the first clue here.

Lots of little pieces! These are smaller units than I usually work with, so I'm doing something new already--I wanted to learn from and refine techniques with the mystery.

Not a lot of color yet, but the grey/neutrals are quiet and calming.








My fabric choices are in this earlier blog post: Fabrics

Can't wait to see what is in store next week!

I am linking with Quiltville's Mystery Monday, Allietare Part 1.

  2. Pretty bunch of "calming" units! Well, mindless sewing is supposed to be a good therapy! (Not like mindless cutting, ask me how I know!) I can't wait for the next blocks either.

    1. Cutting must be mindful, unless you want fewer fingers! Hoping for some color in the next clue (though I'm predicting black/neutral).

  6. You were quick!!! I didn't get a lot done as I have in the past but I'm sure I'll catch up during the week and be ready for Friday.
    I went back and looked at your fabric pull and yowzer....you have a great collection going. Can't wait to see your progress.
