Simplified Celtic Solstice Top is Finished!

On the last day of January, I have my first finished top of the year:

I am happy that it is ready for the long arm quilter, and I am moving on to other things.  It was a fun quilt and I am happy with how it turned out.  I sure made a lot of wrong turns before I got on the right track, but once there, it went very smoothly.  I have a project in mind for the unused chevrons, and will be making 9 patches as leaders and enders to go with the chevrons into another quilt.

This quilt is called Simplified Celtic Solstice, and is a modified version of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice.  Her original pattern instructions will be here: Bonnie's directions until June 1, 2014.

Here's a linkup with all of the other versions of Celtic Solstice : Finale Link-Up

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today (Monday Feb 17) and leaving your kind comment about my little MidWinter Blues quilt. Your comment came through as being from a "no reply blogger." That's what I'm finding from gals who use Google+. For some reason your e-mail address is not connected to your comment when using it.
    Tech stuff just bothers the daylights out of me !! I can't keep track of all the versions of programs and identities. I'm getting too old for this stuff, I guess.


I am always searching for new ideas and your feedback helps me learn how to do things better. Thanks for stopping by!
