Are you joining in with gazillions of other quilters to do the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice? I am!
I only recently "discovered" Bonnie Hunter (What? Have I been living
under a rock?). As soon as I learned about the mystery quilt, I decided I
wanted to join in. Since this is my first time, I decided to use the
colors Bonnie suggested. Most if the time, I like to do my own thing.
But, without knowing how the pieces will come together, I figured I
better use her suggested colors. Next time I may strike out on my own
color-wise (already sure there will be a next time!).
Since I do have a lot of other things I plan to sew/quilt in 2014, I'm
planning to make my version smaller than the two options Bonnie gave, so
I'm going to make half the blocks needed for the 75 x 75 size option.
Even with making the "mini" version, it seemed like it took forever to
get the pieces cut from the first clue, but that's probably just because
I do my cutting late at night!
I finished cutting the blue side triangles Sunday morning and got to sewing a few blocks together Sunday afternoon. Since I had some other sewing projects with deadlines, I only put together 10 units of each colorway.
Here's my start, 10 neutral and ten orange units:
