Let the Allietare Mystery Begin! w/fabric updates...

Actually, Bonnie Hunter has ONLY just released the fabric requirements and the color options for this year's annual Allietare Mystery Quilt via her famous Lowe's Paint Chip method, and here they are!

Thanks to a Quiltville Facebook friend, Betty for sharing these digital paint chips - what a neat idea for those of us who live almost an hour away, across the state line from our nearest Lowe's!

Special Note:  Dark Kettle Black is also a fabric requirement in this color palette.  For ALL the nitty gritty details about this year's Bonnie Hunter Allietare Mystery Quilt, Please follow this direct link:

And now, my personal fabric selections so far, based on my interpretation of these digital paint chip colors:

My camera doesn't do these fabrics justice - the reds and golds are much deeper than this photo depicts, probably due to bright lighting ;-)

Also waiting for some additional fabrics from, should be here within the week:

UPDATE 11/7/2015 - just received my Connecting Threads order and pulled/discovered some additional fabrics during my recent quilt studio re-organization:

Allietare Mystery fabric selections - don't these look rich!

A closer look at these luscious fabrics - can hardly wait to start cutting & sewing!
Still need to make a final decision on our constant Winter Flannel fabric requirement, but I'm leaning towards this one (pictured below).  It's a darker gray with a burlap texture, and fits in nicely with the burlap bags I'm planning on using for gifting my homemade wines in the future ;-)
