Celtic Christmas – part 2…




Our Christmas tree this year.

Our Christmas tree this year.

Bonnie posted part 2 of the mystery on Friday but before I could get sewing I needed to decorate the house, and Sunday was such a beautiful day we took Gracie for a walk.

When all of that was finished I started cutting and stitching like a crazy lady.  I have been working on some Christmas presents but I have also been working on Celtic Christmas aka Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice http://www.quiltville.blogspot.com/p/celtic-solstice-mystery.html.

I am not finished sewing but I am finished cutting and marking.

I have started to sew. Bonnie’s hint to mark all of the center lines does make getting a true rectangle much easier.

I have put together a few of the chevrons just to be sure that I had the concept correct.

As you can see I am keeping Bonnie’s instructions right in front of me because the potential for mistakes is very high with all of these angles.photo (50)

I have been saving the triangles that I am trimming off.  I haven’t decided whether or not I will use them but i just can’t bring myself to throw the out right now.  I have seen that many of you have completed this step already – one question – do you sleep?

I love to look at all of the different combinations of colors that everyone is using.  It is such fun to try to imagine what the end result will look like.

It is snowing a little bit here in Southern Maine right now and that is fine with me.  I have no where that I need to go so I can stay home and sew.  Enjoy the process.

Be Kind…

  1. I got a chuckle when you mentioned those quilters finishing this unit and asking ‘do you sleep’. Lovely Christmas fabrics … I’m using scraps from my stash. I hope you enjoy the process.
