Celtic Solstice Mystery Update - Step #2



Step #2 of Celtic Solstice is finished at Kathy's Quilts!

The chevrons were so fun to sew. The units were time consuming but not difficult if you pay attention, which I didn't always do.
This is a great layout... I can envision a whole quilt made from just these units alone.





Here are 100 chevrons!
In little piles and then transferred for storage in a spinach box with all the units from part #1.

And now... on to part #3.

Pinwheels...how much fun can one quilter stand?!?!
I am cutting 2" strips with the Easy Angle ruler. These fabrics look pretty together but I am a little worried about the lack of contrast in the blocks. We shall see how it goes. It's a mystery!
Tonight at 9 pm is QuiltCam so guess what I'll be sewing?!?  You can see more mystery quilt link ups over at Quiltville.

Your chevrons have great contrast, so it probably isn't a problem that the pinwheels don't. It will be fun to see how Bonnie puts all these pieces together!

I only have 24 of my 100 chevrons made and about the same number of clue 1 done. But today I am going to make the HSTs and then go back to making the others. I had to send for a new set of the rulers (mine must have decided to play hide and seek). I am making the smaller version but it will be Spring before it is a quilt, I am sure.

Your chevrons are fabulous! Im impressed with all of you who have kept up. I haven't finished one clue yet! LOL I'm very curious about tomorrow's clue.

Wow! Great job of keeping up.
