More Celtic Solstice (stash report week 13)

Last Friday's loveliness went away too quickly and we were left once again with temps in the 20s, 30s, and 40s.  So, spring has not sprung upon us, yet.  The outlook for today is better, but it also promises to be an anomaly this week among needed rain and lower temps.

So, I decided to sew.  And I needed to sit and stitch, not mess with borders, bindings, or laying out blocks.  When that need arises, I pull out my latest Bonnie Hunter project and "just keep stitching."

I spent last, chilly, windy Sunday afternoon cutting all the pieces for Celtic Solstice clue #5.  Then, stitched up a few.  It's so nice to leave pieces right next to the machine to pick up where I left off. 

All the block components are complete and 11 blocks are finished!  It is so gratifying to put the blocks together after all those hundreds of components are pieced.  I didn't want to stop!

Hhhmmm...that Bonnie really knows what she's doing to keep us interested, doesn't she?

One advantage to sewing slowly is that I get to see what others have done with their mystery quilts.  Celtic Solstice is made of two alternating blocks.

Some people, either accidentally or purposefully, changed the direction of chevron units and this block...

9.5" unfinished

...became this block.
Linus and Snoopy!

I really like the starburst!  I'm going to use both versions of the block.  

Progress made, but not on the numbers!
