It has been quite a week, the rush to send off Christmas presents, and the big push to organize my crafting area so I was ready to start Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery the moment it was posted on Friday! I ended up getting a bit sick so it has been slow-going over here. I think I spent more time reading posts on the Not-so-secret- facebook group for the mystery and chatting with my new friends than sewing! So I thought I would show you what my pile looks like now that I have finally gotten all the pieces cut up for Clue #1!
The Purplish brown fabric at the top of the picture is the fabric I plan to use for the border when the quilt is completed. It is from Soho Chic by Sandy Gervais with Moda. I wish I had seen this lien sooner as it holds many of my favorite colors, but teh fabrics seem to have gone so fast on the Fat Quarter Shop. I am using the colors from the yardage for inspiration. Well, I really aught to get to sewing while my husband is watching a Christmas movie with Miss Z! It's not too late for you to jump in and join the mystery this year!
