Clue 6: 50 blocks made

The final clue to the 2016 Allietare Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter was posted New Year's Eve. This clue shows the final quilt and what the blocks look like. My guess from last week was spot on! My only problem is that when I laid the block pieces on my DARK rug I liked the stars with the dark center better than the yellow center that Bonnie chose for the pattern.
This is the lovely dark center.

These yellow centers are ok but.....

See my 50 blocks all done?
My final quilt will have 8 yellow centered blocks and 22 black centered blocks.
There are 20 alternate blocks finished also.
Sasha now wants to go for a walk!

So this was the GUESS layout missing the center of the blocks.
(The rug is really dark green.)

This is about what all yellow centers would look like.

This has a mixture of both black and yellow.
The yellow chain is still visible linking the black stars so I made lots of black stars.
Stay tuned for my final reveal. I'll work on the rest once I get back home.


  1. Love your fun and funky fabrics!

  2. Wasn't this a fun mystery? I love my blocks. I will continue to work on making my flimsy!

  3. The mixture of center colors really does liven it up. I've had my 'design floor' speak up on some color decisions, too! 8)

  4. I have to agree with you and pick the black centers & a few gold centers thrown in...will be Beautiful.
    I'm doing string blocks for both my mysteries..

  5. Susan, I agree, I like the DARK centers. Makes the black POP.

  6. Yes, I like your toned down version :)

  7. Such gorgeous blocks, fabulous fabrics.
