Celtic Solstice Clue Two and a Wild and Goosey Detour!

This map shows where some of the folks participating in Celtic Solstice live.  How cool is is that mystery sewers are all over the world?  


I have been working on Clue Two, here are all the cut pieces.  Lime and Black/Brown along with neutrals.   I am loving the look of the chevron blocks, but they take some time and care!  I have fifty all done here...
And TADA all 100 are done!  I am really liking doing the "smaller" version as it is MUCH easier to keep up!  

 These are the parts in stacks of ten so far :)
 And here is another Wild and Goosey block I made tonight.  I have decided to keep the little triangles I am cutting off on step two in Celtic Solstice--they are perfect for the little triangles on Wild and Goosey.  I am going to see if some of my local friends doing the mystery want to share some of their tiny triangles or trade with me for more variety.
 Here are all of the Wild and Goosey blocks I have done so far.  It is in Quiltmaker Magazine's May/June 2013 issue which you can find here.
Here is their picture of what the layout would look like if I add more sashing between the blocks.  I love it and suspect I will be doing that...but I have a LONG way to go and each block takes me about an hour to make.  I love them though and have plenty of scraps to keep on making them!  
Linking up with Bonnie at Quiltville!

Love your colors, and you are so right those little chevrons were sure time consuming...I see my yellow pin on the map...way up in northern BC Canada :)

I love your "packers" colors for your Celtic Solstice! I have a feeling it is going to be one of the best color schemes I have seen so far!
