I made my first block by using freezer paper folded in fourths and cut as I would cut a snowflake pattern:
Each block has a little flower appliqued in each corner, which gives the quilt a light and airy look. Mine is lacking that element, but it will be added soon. Here's the complete quilt:
Where I am with Celtic Solstice:
|Option A uses most of the parts already made|
|Option B has more of a "floor tile" look|
|Option C - one of my first layouts|
|These would look like 4 leaf clovers if the|
colors were reversed!
and one of the points was "recognize when indecision is causing inertia". That's where I am with Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice. I have so many different options that I could make with the pieces, and am still searching for the one that says "this is the one".
So for now, it is tabled. I would appreciate any thoughts you have on any of the above pictures, and also any Celtic Solstice layouts/colors that you just love. Thanks!
My thoughts on CS is don't overthink it, just go with your gut. It's only a quilt! I did the same thing on my Jubilee that I couldn't work on it at all, until I decided to JUST DO IT. If it didn't really turn out like I imagined it wouldn't be the end of the world- I hated the fretting. (I'm not saying you are, but I know I was)
I like A & C...............
Not sure if I'm going to be much help with opinions for Celtic Solstice because I love verisons A and version B!
That said I totally LOVE your DJ triangles in Indigo & shirtings!
They all turned out so gorgeous!
Congrats on starting Benjamin Biggs! Such a pretty start to this quilt!
Your blue and white dear Jane triangle blocks are lovely as is your Benjamin Biggs block. Your Celtic Solstice quilt will be pretty in whatever layout you choose. Have a great day!
That color combination for Dear Jane is wonderful!
I love your alternate BB block. Adds a lot more interest to the center. I'm also absolutely in love with your Jane blocks. That is on my "someday" list. As for CC, I lean toward the A layout, but I like them all.
I love your Dear Jane triangles. I am also doing mine in blue and cream shirtings. I have finished all the blocks and most of the triangles. Unfortunately, I have not worked on it in months.
