First, the Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt, by Quiltville's Bonnie Hunter. When last I wrote, I was still dithering about what to do to make it longer, so it would be a rectangle instead of a square. Here's what I did:

In other news, I finished a charity top for our guild. A wonderful person will quilt it on her long arm machine, and it will go to someone who needs it.
Dancing Nine Patch
I changed it a little. The original pattern calls for 2 in. squares. I used 2.5 in. strips for the blocks and 2 in. strips for the green joining strips.
Would you believe I just finished making 168 quilt blocks? It's true--but I have to admit they're only 4 in. finished.

How did I have time to make all these blocks? I went on my favorite retreat, to my friend Debbie's house. This is our second annual January retreat and it could not have been better.
In spite of the horribly cold weather outside, we had a wonderful warm long weekend, working on our projects together. We chatted, we knitted, we watched Downton Abbey.
We were catching up.
Keep warm, and keep quilting.
