Celtic Solstice: Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt

I've been gone for two weeks, and just got home last night, and I have made very little progress on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt.  Here is a picture of what I've done so far on Part 1:



I started with the orange fabric, and found a piece of teal fabric that has been in the stash for far too long, and it is being used for the outer triangles of this clue.  It is fun to use up fabrics in a mystery quilt.  

I am not sure what colors I'm using for the rest of the quilt now that I've veered off into teal, but that is part of the fun.  I don't have very much fabric that is orange either, but I will wait until the following clues to see how much more is required.

It sure is fun to see what everyone is doing with Part 1.  Here is a link to Bonnie's blog to view the work so far:  (Here)  There were 184 people with links to their blogs the last time I looked.  I should be #185!  Wow, that's a lot of Celtic Solstice quilts!  And there are probably far more without blogs.  Bonnie's mysteries are such a gift to us.  Thank you Bonnie!

I am thinking about a name for my quilt that doesn't involve "Celtic" or "Solstice".  I don't know whether to pronounce Celtic as 'sell-tick'  or 'kel-tick', and I pronounce Solstice as 'soul-tis' and it is probably 'soul-stis'.  Plus I am learning how to spell solstice correctly, but very slowly.  I keep spelling it soltice or stoltice.   I may name my version "Lake Michigan Sunset" instead. I will include Bonnie as designer, and her name for it on the label, of course.

  4. Kell-tick Kell to rhyme with tell, tick to rhyme with kick and sol-stis , sol to rhyme with doll and stis to rhyme with this. That's how we Celts (to rhyme with belts!) say it.
