“Celtic Solstice” Mystery Quilt Revealed

16 01 2014

Bonnie Hunter revealed her “Celtic Solstice” complete design on January 1st as a “Happy New Year” surprise!

Interestingly, my early guess-timate for a block design was on the right track.

The quilt is composed of 2 patchwork blocks, “54-40 or Fight” and “Birthday Girl.” I didn’t come close to guessing the “Birthday Girl” design. You can see the quilt here. You will find links to other mystery participants’ blogs here.

This past week, I assembled the twenty-four “54-40 or Fight” blocks.


The units for the twenty five “Birthday Girl” blocks patiently wait in my project box. Perhaps I’ll tackle them next week.

The most intriquing part of this mystery, the most fun, was mixing and matching and playing with the units Bonnie directed us to make. The possibilities of quilt designs with these pieces and parts was endless!
