Loving the Solstice!


My first nine Celtic Solstice blocks
    I've assembled the first 9 blocks of my version of Celtic Solstice and I couldn't be happier with my color choices.
    There's always that little bit of unease when you change colors from the designer. I thought I could keep the values the same and it would be OK.
     But, since you don't know what the quilt is going to look like, it's still a bit of a crap shoot. I think I won!
    I noticed today while reading the Facebook posts, that I've pressed my 54-40 or Fight blocks wrong. I can fix that on the other blocks, but I'm not going to change the ones I've already done. I've learned a lot on this project and I'll post about that next week.
    This design is a winner. Of all the posts I've seen on FB, they're all wonderful!
    I'm linking up with Design Wall Monday and Bonnie's Link-up. Check out the creativity!



  1. Your CS colorway is great! I like the subtlety of the teal and the mores subdued oranges. Good work!

  2. Looks like another happy Mystery quilter. Watch the placement of your Blocks so the Orange 4-Patch chains are running the same direction.

  3. It is fun seeing all the variations of the Quiltville Mystery quilts.

  4. Love the colors you have chosen. What a beautiful quilt it will be when finished.
