I am following along with Bonnie Hunter fans in making her mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice. The clues may be found on her blog HERE. We are working on Clue #5, split triangle units using some of the triangle units already completed in Clue #3 with additional triangle units from this newest clue.
These are 12 of the split triangle units I’ve completed last night
and an additional six this morning.
There are more cut triangle pieces in my tray on the right with the completed HSTs in the blue baske ton the left.. I truly used pieces of scraps in all of my blocks so far with just a few fat quarter parts thrown in.
The chain piecing of the triangle square units makes it smooth and fast. The one thing I like to do however is to sew them in sections so that after I have assembled 10 or 12, or 20 units, I stop and iron them. Stepping back and looking at the finished groups always give me a sense of satisfaction that the assembled parts are actually blocks. Then I make another group, and on and on.
It seems that I don’t have as many black scraps or fat quarters that are large enough to cut 3 7/8 square inches so I’ll have to dig through my fabric closet, Jo Morton Collection, and maybe visit a fabric store to get more variety.
Of course, Ranger the Maine Coon Cat was a big help during this sewing project.
He slept through the whole thing. Twice. Couldn't have done it without him.
With this blog entry I am linking up with Bonnie’s blog to share my photos. I suggest you visit her linky page to see all the beautiful fabric and color combinations that are assembled there. Simply gorgeous.
It’s not too late to join in on the fun. Just jump in.
