Celtic Solstice Mystery Clue 4 (Bonnie Hunter)

OK.  I'm behind.  I took Bonnie's advice and went on to clue 4 even though I haven't finished clue 3.  I have not finished clue 4, but with Christmas I'm probably as far along as I'll be by Friday.

Updates. 
Part 3:  I have all the half-square triangles cut for part 3.  They're all sitting together on a tray ready for me to sit and sew.  Mindless sewing for New Year's Day?


 Part 4:  I have all my strips cut and sewn.  I'm going to take them with me over the holiday so when things calm down I can go to a quiet place and cut.  Then they'll be ready for me to sit and sew.  This is my first Bonnie Hunter Mystery - How many clues will there be?
 

BEST NEWS!
I finished my family Christmas ornaments Sunday evening.  I started this in 1981, making/purchasing ornaments for nieces and nephews.  Some years I purchased special ornaments to match their interests.  If I traveled they got an ornament from that country.  Eventually my sisters and brothers requested to be included.  I'm not sure at what point it became a big reveal.  The ornaments are now all made by me.  This year I made 26 to be distributed Christmas Eve.
 

Merry Christmas!!

  1. This is my first Bonnie mystery too but I have followed a couple of hers. The number of steps varies; however, she has hinted that we will soon start putting units together. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am and looking forward to seeing how the quilt will look.

  3. Love your cute Christmas ornaments!

    The number of steps isn't known - however, just based on the area of what we've done already, and the amount left to cover, I would say possibly only one more before we start assembling blocks.

  4. I love your Santas. Are they done from a purchased pattern or did you create them?

    1. The Santa's are from "Ho Ho Ho Let It Snow" by Nancy Halvorsen. The pattern was for pot holders. I reduced it to a size appropriate for ornaments.,
