Celtic Solstice and more

On January 1st we got the last step for our Celtic Solstice Mystery by Bonnie Hunter. As I was putting my blocks together I decided to make it 8x8 blocks...so spent some time making extra units, so as to have it Queen size and fit my bed! Here is the progress so far, I have five rows done and now have to sew more blocks together. I LOVE her mysteries, this is the third one for me and I am always so amazed to think wow I made this quilt! I am loving Celtic Solstice with the bright beautiful spring colors. As today it is -42 with the windchill, and folks it is the kind of day to spend in the studio playing with lots of color :)

I love how the blocks are forming the circles...a bit of magic.  I've been watching Bonnie's page on FaceBook and there are some gorgeous Celtic Solstice quilts and different color combination.

I like to stitch in the evening. Here is another one in progress. I am doing a wool felt quilt, the background is almost like pillow ticking ( I believe that is what it is called) I purchased the kit at Buggy Barn in Washington last Fall when my sister and I visited.   I hope you all have a lovely Sunday and are doing something pleasurable...I always say sewing is my sanity .

Wow! Your mystery is looking fabulous! I love it. I didn't participate this year so I am a bit jealous right now.
Keep warm!

It's so pretty! I am eager to put mine together. I plan to add a few extra blocks as well. I need to finish the quilt I am hand quilting before I finish Celtic Solstice.

It looks beautiful! I also want to make mine bigger so it will be bed-sized.
