After a year of starts and stops, Celtic Solstice is nearing the finale. I made the various parts for the missing (ahem miscounted) blocks.
The parts were assembled into 10 beautiful blocks.
The beautiful blocks were laid out next to the finished rows. Yikes! I need ONE more! Oh yeah, I needed 61 in total, not 60.
Thankfully I had a few parts left over and quickly assembled the final block. Hallelujah!
Today I finished the middle, then began on the borders.
A quick burst of creativity resulted in four small corner units that became labels.
Ok, calling all quilters. Does anyone have any extra Connecting Threads "Holiday Elegance" dark green stripe fabric they might want to sell or trade? I need a 3.5" strip 42" long (selvage to selvage) or at least 20 inches of a 3.5" strip.
Please, oh please!
On a higher note, the weather cleared enough last weekend to go flying! A bunch of us flew to an airport about 45 minutes flying time south. We enjoyed a nice lunch and tour of the local airport museum dedicated to WWII memorabilia. We even got to climb inside a B-25 under restoration. It was a glorious sunny day and I made a perfect landing coming home. The glider club even rated it a 10! Nice finish to fun day.
