Design Wall Monday - Celtic Solstice A blocks

Here are the Celtic Solstice blocks that are finished so far. These are 20 of the needed 24 A blocks...


I think they make a striking pattern on their own. 
I see that at least one block has issues with incorrect creative layout! Is there more than 1 block to be repaired? I tried so hard to sew them correctly but there's one in every crowd!
I have 4 more blocks to sew and then I can get going on the B blocks.

Your design wall looks terrific. I also think it makes a wonderful design on it's own.

Your quilt is wonderful, I love the colors you are using.

Your colors are so striking, no one would notice the "creative layout"--except you. If it bothers you, it is good that you found it now, rather than later. And I admit that I would have fixed it, too. : )

I found that I really had to focus when putting these blocks together. I always listen to an audio book when in the sewing room and I had to turn it off until I got the first block done! It's very easy to turn that 4 patch the wrong way!!!!
Love, love, love your colors! Gonna be a beauty!

OH pretty!! Yep, there are several in my quilt that got turned a little wrong...it is all OK!! Creativity!!

I couldn't find the turned block :) I agree these blocks make a terrific design on there own!

Denise :) said...

I couldn't see the turned block, either -- and I looked! LOL! I think it looks fabulous -- I love seeing all the different versions all over blog land!! Have fun stitching! :)

Great colours and love the layout...you could have two quilts if you want.But I have to say I do love this finished mystery. I might even do it one day!!

Mary said...

There is only one block turned so it is an easy FIX. No Unsewing needed. It happens. Be sure to lay the blocks all oriented the same as you do the final setting. PIN, PIN PIN as you take each row to the Sewing machine.

Marei said...

Mary's right....no need to unsew, just turn your block 90 degrees and your pinks will run in the right direction. Yeah! It's always good when you don't have to pull use Jack the Ripper :)

Nell's Quilts said...

Love the blocks you've finished to date. I truly don't know how you do it! Good for you for getting this far along considering how busy the time before Christmas can be. I managed to downloaded the instructions for Celtic Solstice but that's as far as I got.

pcflamingo said...

Yum! Reminds me of chocolate with raspberry filling! Such delicious colors. I just finished 5 of Block #2 so I could lay some of each out to see the design emerge! I'm easily amused.

Gari in AL said...

What a great idea, to make just one of the blocks. But then I just had to see how my colors played together in both blocks. but now, maybe, I will concentrate on one .... and maybe not. ;-)

Lesley said...

Drop dead gorgeous blocks!

Teresa in Music City said...

Your quilt is looking great Kathy!!! Is that black or dark brown on your tri-recs? Every time I see one of these quilts, I wish I had been able to play along :*)

The Cozy Quilter said...

Beautiful blocks, Kathy. I can't wait to see the other blocks done too. It is a lovely pattern.

Bonnie said...

I had to really look to realize what quilt this is... I always expect the green/orange combo! Good for you for getting so much of it done. And, then on to the next block!

Kate said...

It's amazing how different those blocks one their own. Looking forward to seeing these up on the wall with the "b" blocks.

So nice blocks. I had to study to find the creative block. And I did! You always see it better on a photo. I turned one of the star pionts in one of my blocks, and didn't see it before I put the picture on Facebook.
