Celtic Solstice Top completed

At last the borders are on and the top is completed for the Bonnie Hunter's 2014 Mystery Quilt, Celtic Solstice.  

A few things about this quilt and its making:

  I haven't worked with this colour combination before
I learned what a very accurate 1/4" is
I used Tri Rec rulers for the first time
I still can't follow a pattern to a T ( I changed the borders a bit)

I spy my inspector, do you?

Time to get the back together and off to a long armer (Urbanquiltworks perhaps)

If you are having another snowy day, stay warm under one of your wonderful quilts.

Happy stitching

Celtic Solstice Mystery quilt up date:

I am so sorry for not blogging much lately.  If just seems to take extra effort to blog.  So I have been using Instagram and Facebook more often. If you use either of these check in with me there.

I have been extremely busy on the home front.  DD# 2 is on the basketball team which has had me running to 8 games last week and a few the week before.  Not too mention all her dance classes too.  Any spare time has gone to running the house and working on my Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice.  I am so happy to say as of today my top is finished! (but it was dark out when I finished so no completed pictures yet.)
Here are some progress pictures

blocks coming together

asked IG and FB friends what I should do

Bed fitting before last border
I'll get some completed top pictures tomorrow. 

What have you been working on?

Happy Stitching

Celtic solstice quilt

I'm slowly but surely getting this quilt together. 
I am at the assembly of blocks stage now   .   Maybe by the weekend I'll have a row or two together. 
I have been learning lots in the process. Getting my confidence up to tackle other quilt patterns with new to me techniques.

Did you join in on this mystery quilt?  Have you done others?  

It's been fun. Happy stitching
