WHOA!! Now that's impressive (and beautimous, too! HA)

Dorothy Finley said...

Because it's all plaids, you know Bonnie will love it too ! Mine has been done for a year--just needs a back and quilting ;-( So I guess it's not really "done". Looks wonderful !!

Congrats! on a FABULOUS finish. My Allietare MAY still be a pile of blocks... with no completion in sight!!

Carol Stearns said...

This one is for you! You are keeping it right? I love the way you angled the corners! I have a drawer of plaids crying out for a quilt! Great idea!

It looks very warm and inviting. I'm surprised one of the young whippersnappers hasn't snatched it for their own use.

Beth said...

wow Wow WOW! I didn't play last year and have been kicking myself every since! I am working on EnProvence and will start putting blocks together soon. I DID print out Allietare, so I can go back...but what COLORS!? Oh the choices! I LOVE LOVE LOVE yours! Pat yourself on the back and snuggle up!

Mari said...

Really pretty! I like the cutoff corners especially. Makes it unique and different from all the others. Great finish!

Wow - I love it! The plaids make it so uniquely yours. Huge congrats on such an awesome finish.

Fabulous!Great colors and love the plaid. Since it is a used quilt it can be tossed my way. Ha!

Alison said...

I love all of the different plaids you used! This is a very fun version of this quilt!

Bound too? Pretty soon, I won't believe you have a binding problem! ;)

mangozz said...

Great quilt for a guy! It looks so warm and cozy. Did you use homespun? It looks too well coordinated to be thrifted shirts.

Ranch Wife said...

Wow! That's gorgeous! You are on a roll, girl!

Kevin the Quilter said...

There are so many things I love about this quilt, two being your color choice and the angled corners. Great idea!

Lynne Stucke said...

Wow! I think yours is the best Allieterre I've seen. Love those plaids! Bonnie will love it, too! (lynnstck[at]yahoo.com)

Tammy Stack said...

very nice!

Dar said...

Fantastic finish for sure! I love it in plaids because it is uniquely yours. I prefer quilts that use different colors than the original pattern or plan. It looks like it's ready for a nice nap under it. If you had our weekend forecast, ice storm, I know you would be snuggled up with it.

Nann said...

Your version of Allietare is beautiful! I love homespun plaids.

Quilter Kathy said...

I think that's my favourite Allietare so far! Love the plaids!
I really like the corners too!

sosarahsew said...

That is so striking in plaids. I can see I need to be adding plaids to the meager supply I have. Thanks!

I love your fabrics and colors. This looks great!

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

Wow, wow, wow! This is so gorgeous. I'm not a plaid user, but they look SO good in your quilt! This is a wonderful finish - congratulations! You can slow down now so the rest of us can catch up! :)

Love the plaids! Congrats on a very pretty finish.

Preeti Harris said...

Love the fall colors. Congratulations on the finish - it is lovely!!!

Melody A. said...

it is fantastic!! love all the plaids. so rich and cozy looking.

JM said...

I don't usually love quilts in a neutral/brown palette, but something about this is just AWESOME! I love the incorporation of the plaids and the flashes of white here and there keep it from feeling too weighed down. Beautiful work and great choices!
