I love when others participate in mystery quilts and share their progress and finishes, but I can never seem to bring myself to cut into lovely fabric for an unknown turnout of a mystery quilt! Since I haven't been longarm quilting as much lately because my knees have been bothering me (I'm undergoing Euflexxa injections and hope they will help), I thought, why not take a chance on this mystery quilt? So these are the pretty fabrics I've chosen, a fat quarter bundle of an old line from Nancy Halvorsen called Garden Song. I needed a few more blues so pulled them from another old Nancy Halvorsen Christmas line (I forgot to photo the extra blues). Nancy's fabric lines tend to play nicely together color-wise and I really like the darker additions I found in my stash!
The quilt I'm making is from Bonnie Hunter's blog, Celtic Solstice (<-- clickable link). If you love scrappy quilts, check out Bonnie's site. Even if you don't, her site has a lot of amazing information AND she has a bunch of free quilt patterns. Bonnie's blog was the first blog I ever read, over a decade ago, and I still enjoy it to this day.
Below are pics of the blocks I made with the first "clue" for Celtic Solstice. I hope I can keep up with the clues!
I have a big quilt on the frame right now that I've been quilting a little at a time. I think a few more quilting sessions and it will be finished. It's a Christmas gift so I won't post any photos until January.
Hop on over to Bonnie's Monday Link-Up and see what others are using for their fabric choices!
