Our order from Connecting Threads arrived. I was almost out of thread! Here are Kathy's fabrics (we haven't pulled scraps yet but we will) and possibly my fabrics for Celtic Solstice--Bonnie's next mystery. If you have never joined in in a Bonnie mystery, just go for it. She has two sizes this time around so it will be more doable! Kathy and I are hosting a kickoff party at a quilt shop the day after the first clue comes out. So far there are 12 of us coming and we are all posting pictures on our facebook invite page of our fabrics and having a nice discussion that is getting us all excited!
The final project is now a flimsy. It is 6x6 with 36 total blocks. I really enjoyed making these blocks once I got into the groove (as Bonnie says) but for all the hours I spent it still seems like a tiny top! Kathy is now making one from her dad's shirts (a few scraps from his are in here along with scraps from my dad's shirts and fabric from Norway). She may do wall hangings instead a top though.
