|My pick of color way in the center|
Last year in November, I began Celtic Solstice, a mystery quilt created by Bonnie Hunter. Linda Franz - Inklingo - hooked up with Bonnie Hunter and created a Celtic Solstice Shape Collection. Bonnie Hunter had a color way picked. Linda choose another, and I had so many scraps of blue, I chose a blue color way with neutrals of light gray and cream. Using Inklingo, I printed out my pieces.
I put the clues together...there were 5 of them and then the reveal....clue 6. Inklingo made the process a pleasure. I must admit I took my time. I kept getting distracted by other quilt projects. I'm hand piecing so I took it up as the mood struck me. I mostly stitched the pieces while I watched a TV program, or when I gathered with quilt friends. Sometimes I sat and stitched and thought about this and that.
The thing about hand piecing is that you can do that. You're not sitting in front of a sewing machine in your sewing room. (Although sometimes that can be fun too.) You can hand piece anywhere. So time with this project was like no time at all, because while I put this quilt top together, I was always doing something else.

I've now hand pieced all the blocks and I'm assembling the quilt top. My plan is to put blocks together in 4 block sections, then piece these sections together for the quilt center.

As I said, I get distracted.
