Design Wall Monday and Celtic Solstice

Well, I finally got caught up on Celtic Solstice (Thank you Bonnie for a quick part 4 during the holidays).  Here are all my little 4-patches sewed and pressed awaiting their turn. Each stack has (10) 4-patches in them.

On my design wall this morning are blocks for my block exchange.  These little 4 inch bow ties looked so lonely up there all by themselves, I thought they needed some company.  
So I played around with the CS mystery blocks like I've seen on other blogs earlier.
I tried it with the 4-patches turned with the green inside/orange outside then reversed it.  To tell you the truth, I cannot see much of a difference either way.  I am using a bit darker rusty orange in place of Bonnie's bright orange on most of the blocks.   

I'm linking up with Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday and Quiltville's Celtic Solstice.  Go check them out to see more of what's going on in blogland this morning.


  1. 2 great lay-out suggestions! And you are all caught up - am still working on mine...

  2. Great blocks you've made! So interesting to see all different ways of joining them. And great to see how Bonnie does it in the end.

  3. Great arrangement of the mystery blocks! Hope you're right!

  4. I have a bow tie quilt that I need to make.... after some of these other projects are finished! I like your idea for the layout of the Celtic Solstice. It's fun to see what layouts people are showing. Merry Christmas!

  5. I'm glad Bonnie gave us a simple task this week, to. But now I'm hanging out for the next clue!

  6. I love your possible CS blocks. Hope you had a very merry Christmas.

  7. Dar, I think your mystery blocks look great! I think the green finishes out the design surrounding the center block nicely! I LOVE your rusty oranges, and think it will add a dimensional effect to the other colors in the quilt!


Thanks for taking time to stop by and visit. It makes my day to get mail - either online or in the old fashion mailbox! Some habits you never outgrow.
