Allietare

My very first Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt!! I have thought about doing Bonnies mystery for many years but there was always something which got in the way.

When I saw it this year on Bonnie Hunters blog I knew had to do it. The clincher was seeing that the inspiration was Bonnies trip to Italy, in particular, Florence and Pisa.

We had just returned from a wedding anniversary trip to Florence and Pisa so that swung it for me.

I decided not to make s full size quilt, all my quilts go to Project Linus so I decided just to make half the clues up.

I had a fair amount of the requisite blacks and reds in my stash, I added some Karen Lewis blueberry park to the mix. My main grey was blueberry park. I think my golds were a bit too yellow but I like them and am happy with the he way they play with the others.
I mostly kept up with th clues, got a little bit behind at the end but I got there eventually. The Christmas break gave me plenty time to catch up for the final reveal.

I love it, absolutely love it.

I adore this top, it does indeed gladden me to see the fun bright and bold colours, thank you Bonnie for such a fun end to 2015 and fun start to 2016.
