Looks like Little Irish Bear is up to her ears in HST's!
But, apparently I got carried away and read my note of '40 squares' as '40 pairs'. Now I have nearly twice the HST's I need for the small quilt!
Not to worry. I have a couple ideas for using them up.
1. Pinwheel blocks will look great alternating with the Irish Puzzle blocks I'm making from the bonus HST's that I'm trimming from Step 2. That would make a nice lap size 'bonus quilt'.
2. I will want my Celtic Solstice to be queen size eventually, and so will need to add borders to the small size CS pattern. They might work out great there.
3. Something entirely new might come to mind later in the Mystery. Who knows?
Celtic Solstice, and all my other quilting, will be put away today until after Christmas. We have the neighbors over for a Holiday Open House this coming weekend and then our children and their spouses will be here for the holidays. Have to magically transform the 'quilting' room back into a bedroom, and my 'cutting table' back into it's original purpose as the dining room table. I'll enjoy seeing your progress in the mean time, and will eventually get my CS done. No timetable, no competition, no pressure! Just loving the creative process, and learning something new every Step of the way.
Monday Linkup for Step 3.
