“Celtic Solistice” is a mystery quilt designed by Bonnie Hunter of quiltville.com. For the past several years, she has challenged her blog followers with a mystery that lasts from Thanksgiving weekend through Epiphany. One clue is published each Friday.
I decided to play along this year, even though I will be out of town visiting relatives on some of the weekends and thus miss prime, uninterrupted sewing time. I will do my best to catch up during the week.
This box, hand made by my friend, Katrin, a professional book binder, organizes my patchwork pieces.
Bonnie suggested lots of oranges, yellows, greens, blues and white/neutrals. Most of my neutrals are tan or cream based, so I decided since my colored fabrics are bright I will use only one white on white neutral for the whole quilt. In the end, we’ll see how it looks compared to Bonnie’s scrappy quilt.
