Allietare! reveal .

What a surprise to get the last clue and reveal so soon. I was sure we had a few more clues for the MQ.  If you missed out on this MQ, click the button "Allietare!" on the left for all of the clues.

I was worried that my burgundies were not bright enough ( but they reminded me of wine/grapes) also that my grey was too dark...all my worry was for naught, I am thrilled with my colors and am in love with this design. Bonnie is a wonderful designer, this has to be my favorite so far.
Here it was a few days ago: I sewed like mad to make the corners and a few blocks.

Than had to take a break to get my house back to normal after the holidays.
 I settled in this morning and finished making the blocks, you might say I had a sew a thon!The middle is finished , no borders yet. 
I am in love.  Very glad that I stuck with Bonnie's color theme, it really does say Italy and I see music notes quilted on it in the very near future. 
To view what others have done with Allietare! visit Bonnie's Link up Monday

I have been working on some UFO's....and I have quite a few. 
I was working on this charity quilt when the last clue came out, I did finish quilting but it is still on the frame. Will take it off tomorrow and add binding. 

And than get the borders on Allietare! 
I look forward to viewing all my new friends blogs, there are so many different colorways being used. 
Happy New Year!

I am impressed that you got the top done- I am hopping to have my smaller version top done by the end of next week. I am going away in my trailer to the mountains to sew Thurs/Friday but am working on finishing the BOM blocks that i am teaching at Paradise Sewing. So many blocks sew little time! Love yours!
