Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt ]
Part 5 is done! It's nice to have the blue fabric to work with again, and to use up those little half square triangles. I was able to get all the blue pieces from my 3.5 in. strip drawer.
I don't usually keep 2 in. strips as part of my scrap users system (based of course on Bonnie's system), because I don't tend to use them in quilts. I like easy math, the easier the better, so I keep strips whose finished sizes are whole numbers (1.5 in., 2.5 in., 3.5 in., 4.5 in., etc.). A friend gave me a few 2 in. strips, and now I'm cutting some for this quilt, so I'll have some left over. It'll be a chance to expand my thinking. Or I could use them in string quilts.
So, five parts done! Wonder how many more parts there are? Will we be making blocks soon? I love seeing everyone's guesses and the way they have arranged the blocks.
Stay warm, and stay in stitches!
