I wasn't whining when I said I was disappointed that Bonnie's first post in her 'Celtic Solstice' mystery quilt looked tricky. I was only saying that I thought some of the people I've encouraged to have a go at the mystery might have been daunted when they saw it. I love Bonnie's mysteries (and her designs) and I love the way she is so generous with them, and would never complain or criticise. But ...... I was right. Meeting some of the ladies this week, they had all looked at the post and been overwhelmed. What a shame. Luckily I was able to point them to the templates part and reassure. I'll wait for developments!
Here are my tri-rec blocks in process. (I've finished them all now.)
And I was delighted to see that today's instructions are for much simpler blocks, with rectangles and squares. I started by looking through my 2" box.
There were enough 2" neutral squares already cut to make the size I want! I love being able to use these leftovers!
There weren't enough green strips, but there were a number, and the rest will come from yardage.
As to the yellow 2" squares - only two! Still, it's a start!
I have been doing other sewing too. I've finally finished my Orca Bay! It was one of Bonnie's mysteries from 2 years ago! I did a plain border, which I think is the perfect foil for the piecing.
And I have also made this Linus quilt. I had a request for a quilt for a little girl who loves butterflies, so made this one up for her. The butterflies are from a Fons and Porter magazine, and really knit up big! A pink binding will finish this off perfectly.
