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!

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

Just got my flimsy done tonight and love it. You did a great job on yours. I did the borders in cream and the outer border in green also. I love the looks of it.
Thank you Bonnie for the pattern.

Congratulations on finishing the flimsy! You are very quick...my Celtic Solstice is still in bits and pieces.

Cheryl said...

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.

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.

Congratulations! Bonnie's mysteries are always winners.
