A finish for February

My one monthly goals for February included the finishing of this quilt. It is celtic soltice, a quiltville mystery quilt from 2013. I have had it pretty much ready for quilting since then.



I had thought I would do a celtic quilting on the quilt, but, opted in stead for the big swirls in a cool gray color.

And for a backing I used a bit of the shamrock - don't you know. While making it, the green was very overpowering green, but, with the blue borders it calmed the colors. I like that it makes large circles as a secondary pattern.

See my other mystery finishes here

I finished all 30 blocks that I am doing every month for my swap partners for our version of the circa 1880 quilt.


I had hoped to get the border on the Christmas snowflake quilt. I did, and, I also pieced the backing, and prepared the binding. It's ready for the longarm.

  2. Very pretty quilt. I did that mystery too. I started hers this year and was just not in the right place to continue, so I'm using the pieces in other things.

  10. Lots of good work here. CONGRATS for your Celtic Solstice finish! It can be so amazing to see how much borders can change the look of a quilt's center. That green is perfect in this. It would get lost if it weren't so strong.
