Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt...plugging along!

There are almost 200 quilters who have linked up their amazing progress.  Nice job everyone, you inspire me to sew just a few more!

Completed Tri-Rec Units So Far

I am making lots of progress on the Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt.  I am working on the tri-rec units from Clue #1 still and they are adding up.  I have 130 of the 140 needed of the orange units; and 150 of the 240 neutral units.  I have found that it goes the best for me if I work on them in batches of 10 with my leader/ender in between.
We have had a busy week and this is a fun project to do in between all the other holiday things.  I still have a pile of half-sewn units to finish up, but at least the first side of blue star point is on.
My fabrics for clue#2 are sitting and waiting at the cutting area I set up in our upstairs hall.  They look so pretty together and I love chevron units. 
Tomorrow, clue #3 comes out and I am excited to see the next step and will just keep working on this lovely project until I get it done!!!!


  1. Wow! I'm so happy to find you! I did the Craftsy BOM too! And I started a blog to do Bonnie's Celtic Solstice Mystery, but I'm only doing the smaller size. This whole thing is so crazy, but fun! I'm both looking forward to and dreading the next clue because I want to see where things are going, but I am so far behind... I only have two kids (also SAH) , but they are plenty busy for me and it is a challenge to get my sewing fix in ;-)

    1. It is crazy, it's kind of a funny time to do this large quilt blitz! I am doing most of my shopping online so I can sew! Have you quilted your BOM yet? Mine is basted and waiting patiently! Hope to get to it soon. Have fun and thanks for leaving a nice comment.
