Here is a picture of my clue 4 four-patches. We were to make 120 of these in orange and green. Of course, my orange is hot pink! I worked on these in between customers yesterday. We sold several sewing machines to be Christmas gifts. It was a pretty good day.

Here is a picture of my completed Celtic Solstice Clue 2. These 100 blocks were not hard to make but they were time-consuming. After I got them finished today I heard of another way to make them - an easier way. I pieced each piece, but another blog, http://www.stitchingcircle.com/?p=1876bduct showed how to do it by strip-piecing it. If I had known that I would have done it that way. However, I got them done and now look forward to the next clue, slated to go live on Friday morning. I do love the colors together. The yellow seems to strike sparks off the green, and with the white is very pleasing to the eye. I can't wait to put these together with my dark purples and hot pinks.

I am making Bonnie K. Hunter's new mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice. She posted the first clue Friday morning, and I got started cutting my fabrics at work that day. I worked at it off and on over the weekend and just now, Sunday night at 10, I finished the first clue. Here is a picture of my pieces finished. I made 92 blocks with pink in the center and 96 blocks with my neutral in the center. Here is also another picture of the fabrics I have chosen to put in this quilt. I changed two of Bonnie's colors - my purple for her blue and my pink for her orange. I didn't change her green or yellow but I did change some of my neutrals. I am using white on white scraps for my neutrals. I like Bonnie's way of using prints on the neutrals but it really makes for a busy quilt. I am linking this post to Bonnie's blog quiltville.blogspot.com. Many people will be linking to her blog, because many people are doing this quilt. I am proud to be one of them.
