Allietare Week 1

32 half square triangles done - 262 more to go!

This is my third Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. I used Bonnie's color suggestions for the first two. For this one I am only changing the black to navy. I'm hoping for a patriotic feel. Except for the gray fabric, the rest comes entirely from my stash! 

Except for some Christmas fabric to make 7 stockings and some ornaments, I have pretty much stuck to my goal of no new fabric this year unless it was for borders, backing, or binding.  The only other fabric purchases were five fat quarters purchased while on vacation in Maine and three Kaffe Fassett charm packs. 

Don't forget to visit Bonnie Hunter's blog to see how far along everyone else is after this holiday weekend.

Starlight, Starbright

It took a few months but I've finally finished piecing the Starlight, Starbright quilt top.The pattern is by Missouri Star Quilt Co. I hope to get this top basted over the weekend so I can get it quilted by the end of November.

This quilt will be a Christmas present for my father. He served in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. Thank you for your service, Dad.
