Allietare Part 3 - Done!

Such a sense of accomplishment to get the Bonnie Hunter MQ Allietare clues caught up todate.

That and getting ready for Christmas with bindings to get sewn onto quilted presents for my grandchildren. I have a zillion miles of binding left to go!! All quilts have been quilted by Kim Caskey Custom Quilting in Edmonton (and photo credits as marked).

Grand Illusion, the very generous 2014 Mystery Quilt from Bonnie Hunter, itinerant and prolific quilter, from Quiltville (& from her mountain retreat aka Quiltvilla). The backing on this is a chevron blue white and grey minky and my granddaughter is going to love it.

Tumalo Trail, a brilliant way to use those 2" squares. Another fabulous pattern from Bonnie Hunter's book Scraps & Shirttails II, Continuing the Art of Quilting Green. Bonnie used 1.5" in her's, but I have had a stack of 2" to use up...Quilting Green.

My Little Irish Dream, a Disappearing 9 Patch using up some of the delightful shamrock phat quarters (even the thread colour is named "Limerick") that I have bought over the past 3 visits to Ireland with Celtic Quilt Tours. We always have a fabulous time and you should come with us. They have also added quilt tours to Scotland and France to the list. So much quilting fun around the world and so little time!

Enough blogging for one night, I have binding to sew on!!!
I am connecting to Quiltville, click over here to see the progress and fun going on in the name of Allietare.
my love and hugs to all


  1. Good progress on your mystery, and lovely to see your other quilts, too.

  2. Love your variety, and your quilts are Beautiful!

  3. I bet that minky is great on the back of Grand Illusion. Keep sewing!

  4. Nice to see your mystery coming along and your other quilts are gorgeous too!

  5. Wow Kathy! Wonderful quilts! I love your fabrics for Allietare, nice and scrappy. I don't have that much variety in mine. I hope you get your bindings all done!

  6. Beautiful units for the MQ, and my you have finished some gorgeous quilts.

  7. Lovely quilts. Really like your Grand Illusions - mine didn't turn out as well, think I needed more contrast. Happy holidays.
