Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice Mystery and Inklingo, Clue 1

A perfect combination for me–a great quilt designer and Inklingo. I discovered with the only other quilt mystery that I participated in (Bonnie’s Orca Bay), that a quilt mystery is a stretch for me. I very much like to know where I’m going. It’s uncomfortable for me to let go and just do it!

I pretty closely followed Bonnie’s suggested colors of yellow, orange, green and blue (plus a neutral). From my somewhat limited stash I chose a jewel-toned turquoise for the blues, and caramels for the orange:

Here are the Clue 1 shapes printed on the ‘back’ side of the fabric:

The darker line is for cutting, the dashed lighter line is the stitching guide. I did a print test and these colors wash out of the fabric.

This afternoon I’ll cut the shapes apart. I’m hoping to get the majority of the units sewn before Clue 2 is released Friday. If not, I’ll follow Bonnie suggestion to go on to the next clue and catch up when I can.

Thanks for stopping. Check the progress of many other Mystery participants by clicking the picture below (it will take you to Bonnie’s blog link-up post).00 Paddy125’til later,

Update: Met my Tuesday goal–all the shapes are cut apart. Yipee… Sewing begins Wednesday!
