Celtic Solstice, Part 3!

I’ve squeezed in a bit more time over the past several weeks to work on part 3 of Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice quilt. The instructions are still available until this June if you want to make one for yourself!

There are 6 steps in total, and I’ve completed the piecing on steps 1, 2 and 3. Part 3 has beautiful pinwheels and little individual blocks in yellows and oranges. These blocks are so sunny and cheerful!

Here are my 25 pinwheel units and 100 half-square triangles:

I used the Waterlogue app to turn the pinwheel units into this faux painting. I think I could frame it and put it in my quilting room!

I invited my cat inspectors to examine these blocks, but they were not interested. Hmmm. Oh well, my dog performed his stunt-double duties and decided to sit with me while I took photos:

Cat inspectors were too busy!

This weekend, I plan to sew together my quilt blocks and sashings for the Star Light Star Bright QAL hosted by Melissa.

Do you have any quilty plans?
