Celtic Solstice Mystery Progress
I love the interlocking circles of this pattern.
I love the touches of orange. This surprised me. I don't usually put a lot of orange in my quilts.
I love the stars. I've always wanted to make a quilt with these stars.
I loved getting the clues on Friday mornings, and linking up on Monday.
I loved seeing what everybody else was doing, especially all the amazing colors.
I love using my scraps and yardage I had on hand (although I was getting a little worried when I used up the very last of my orange fabric).
I love Bonnie's clear directions. (It isn't her fault I can't make chevrons.)
I loved the surprise of the reveal. It was like getting another Christmas present.
Now I have to figure out what to do after I get the blocks together. If I follow the pattern, I'll have a square quilt. When I was a kid I slept under a square quilt, and it was not fun--not long enough to tuck in and always falling off the bed. So I need to do something different. Hmm.
Stay warm today. Keep calm and sew on!
