Allietare Started

Step 1  a bunch of 2 inch triangles hanging with my colour chooses.

I am working on Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt again this year. It is called Allietare, it has memoirs of  the trip to Italy that she did last May. My Aunt Smiley Quilter and her sister was on the trip with Bonnie.

Boonies link up party today is Here, I guess many people are not linking back to the post correctly. 

I did most of the cutting and have started step 2. I do not have a set of 4 completed units just yet. The first 3 sets need ironing, they look like they are a the correct size so far. I am using to first method Bonnie suggested and know it would be good for me. I did not even look at the second method.   

Yes I am sewing on an old singer machine. She from 1948.

So the first method gives you a whole lot of left over tiny triangles trimmings. So what was I to do. I sewed a few together. I have 2 mini pinwheels. Not sure I will do many more of those.

I have also added this to Judy Design Wall Monday.


  1. I am loving your colors Cathy, it is going to be fabulous. Your Aunt and her sister must have had a blast on the trip.

  2. Beautiful colours! I love to see old machines still in use.

  3. Really love your color choices! I'm looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

  4. I love your colors for this quilt. Does your aunt know what the finished quilt will look like? I like how you used the trimmings to make the pinwheels.

  5. Beautiful colours, it is going to be a great quilt
