We had company over the weekend so I didn’t know if I would get time to do my clue #3 for the Celtic Solstice Mystery…but the clue was a little less time consuming this time so I managed to sneak some time in on Sunday.
I made a few changes to mine…one change….I made all the backgrounds on these the same yellow. I am low on yellows and this made it easy. The other thing I did was keep all the orange triangles in each of the individual pinwheels the same orange/cheddar color. I love scrappy but I like a little unity too. I am hoping this gives me a happy medium.
I am opting to make a size somewhere in between the small and the king so I have 43 pinwheels and 158 half square triangles. I don’t know how I came up with those numbers…Hopefully I won’t have to make lots more.
Here are the other pieces of the quilt waiting for instructions. So far, I don’t mind the color combination but we’ll see what the next clues bring.
I am off to get a quilt on the quilting frame….I have quite a long list of quilts that need attention. I am also going to be sewing LOTS on that double wedding ring quilt. So far..not a lot progress to show so I’ll save that for later this week once I get a test block sewn.
Stop back later today. I am hoping to get some time to take some pictures of my Smith Mountain Morning quilt…I need some border advice and I’m hoping you might be able to give me some.
Today I am hooking up with Judy at Patchwork Times and Bonnie at Quiltville.
Make sure to stop by tomorrow for our “Try it on Tuesday” Giveaway. If you missed my New Year’s resolutions, you can see them here.
