Once again, Bonnie Hunter is doing her Winter Mystery Quilt. This year it was inspired by her trip to Tuscany, Italy and is named "Allietare". Click HERE to join in the fun.
Bonnie's mystery kicks off on Black Friday, with a clue being revealed on every Friday after that until the final reveal, somewhere around New Year's Day.
For someone like me who designs most all her own quilts - art and traditional, joining in on the mystery is a welcome break. I still control the size and the colors but the design work and layout is out of my hands. It's rather a freeing exercise in relinquishing control.

Since I am only making a lap size quilt, I got through the required number of HSTs fairly quickly.
Notice the two different sizes? I decided to challenge myself a little more and am also making the same quilt, same colors... in miniature. The studio may be a fairly busy place for the next several weeks. Click HERE to check out the Linky Party to see how quilters around the world are doing on the Allietare Mystery.
