Celtic Solstice!


Bonnie published the "solution" to the Celtic Solstice mystery quilt early on January 1.  At 11:15 p.m. my audiobook ended and I had two inner borders and the outer borders to attach. I chose sleep!  Today I firmly told myself to finish my homework (the AAUW-IL midyear financial report) before going downstairs to sew. 

Here is the result of my reward.  Though I used Bonnie's colorway, I used yellow for the inner border. I turned the upper-left and lower-right corner units.  I cut the outer border 3.5" (Bonnie's is 2"). 

The flimsy used 8 yards of fabric.

Thank you, Bonnie, for another wonderful mystery pattern!

  4. WOW! That was fast! I am debating the light inner border. And the Green outer border. Still plugging away making blocks and some parts.

  9. Beautiful. Congratulations on such a quick and beautiful finish. After Easy Street last year I did not even think about doing another mystery over the holidays. Very striking quilt.

  10. A splendid finish! Congratulations! But I'm very confused by you're saying that you had turned two corner units; I don't see that. The inner borders are nice in yellow.
