Celtic Solstice Clue #1 - Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt
After taking several of Bonnie's classes this past year (including the Lazy Sunday Mystery on New Years), I wanted to do the online mystery as well. Like everyone else, I waited patiently for October 23 to arrive so that we could find out what the colors would be. Once the clue was out, Mister went to Home Depot for me to get the paint chips. What a great guy! I then went to my stash (yes, I am finally building one) and this is what I came up with: brights in orange, yellow, green and blue. I will need a few more for variety, but am off to a great start. Now to wait for the Friday after Thanksgiving to find out the first clue.
I was blessed with a ton of family around for the holiday and so was only able to read the clue. On Friday we did have a sewing party in the studio while Bekah worked on her quilt, Jen worked on the ones she is doing for Christmas, and Cassie split her time between the table runner she is quilting and ironing fabrics for me to cut for Celtic Solstice. I did manage to get the strips cut.
I spent Sunday cutting and was finally able to sit down to the sewing machine on Monday to sew. Yay! Although this picture shows my Elna -- this project is being sewn on my 301A "Annie". Monday left me with chains everywhere and the second "rec" ready to be attached. There are 32 different blues, 20 oranges, and 30 neutrals. I am hoping that is enough variety so far.
I spent all day today in the studio and managed to finish clue #1. Everything is pressed, trimmed, and in stacks of 10. Now for a couple of days to work on other projects. Here is the link back to Bonnie's page so that you can check out all the other posts. Enjoy!
Piece count so far: 1,140 required (although I made extra blocks)
