Design Wall and Celtic Solstice

On my design wall are the beginnings for two projects that will use a rainbow of colors (and my stash).  One is the RBS Challenge and the other is a quilt I'm making with the help of friends.  Both use strips/strings of colors from the stash bins and are so much fun to do.  I can't wait to see the final results when all the different blocks are put together with many different hues of color families.

Here is my worksheet for the colors and layout I wanted and to keep track of who is doing which color block for me.  With a little help from my friendss (22 blocks), this will be one of my favorite quilts for sure.  I still have almost 60 more blocks to make myself, but I'm looking forward to the finished quilt and all the great fabrics it will contain. 

Celtic Solstice did not make it to a flimsy by the time Bonnie had her last post, but  I am getting close. Here's where I am and now comes the decision on how to finish.  I've seen lots of good ideas from others who have theirs done and I want to make it mine, so I just need to make a decision and get it done.

To see more Design Walls, go to Patchwork Times and for more Celtic Solstice, check out Bonnie's Finale link up HERE.


  1. How special to have a quilt made with blocks from your friends Dar! You will treasure it forever :*) Your CS looks marvelous - can't wait to see how you decide to finish it!

  2. and Teresa in Music City have inspired me to make a rainbow "Soul Searching" RSC14. It is just too good of a block to pass up for a challenge like this! Your string quilt is going to be so cool too! OK, YOU'RE COOL! LOL

  3. What fun to make a quilt with a little help from your friends. Love the color blocks. Looking forward to seeing your progress. Your Celtic Solstice is beautiful.

  4. OOO! I am going to enjoy seeing this quilt come together.

  5. Those string blocks with the black is going to be a very dramatic quilt. Looking forward to seeing the progress on all your projects.
