I finally finished my Allietare quilt to flimsy status. That means the top is together, but still needs to be sandwiched and quilted. Bonnie K Hunter started posting clues to this mystery quilt the day after Thanksgiving last November. She posted the clues on her blog, one each week until New Years. I changed two colors from what Bonnie suggested. She used Tuscan colors inspired from her trip to Italy last year. I changed her red to blue and her gray to dark red. My quilt is a little darker than those who used Bonnie's colors. I also think mine looks rather more masculine than most. I used a black piano key border instead of Bonnie's suggested border. She showed how to scallop the edges. I decided not to scallop the edges for this one.
I showed the quilt top to my husband and he claimed it for his own. He sleeps in a twin bed with the thickest mattress I've ever seen. The size of this quilt makes a generous cover for his bed. I am going to quilt this one on my Husqvarna Viking Opal sewing machine. This will be the largest quilt I have quilted so far. Now to choose a backing!
