New Project Started

I had so much fun learning to use the Marti Michell specialty rulers to make the blocks in clue #1 of Celtic Sostice, that I started a new project with them. Alex Anderson's "Holiday Lights" is a customer favorite. I am choosing to make it in the version with mostly black print backgrounds with colorful trees. The other version has green trees with mostly white print backgrounds. Since most of the white prints in my stash are currently in the project box for Celtic Solstice, I opted for this version. Early days yet, and of course, this won't be the final layout.

Tomorrow is clue #2 of Celtic Solstice. It is snowing here now, so it is pretty safe to say that come morning I will be at my sewing machine with a hot beverage and clue #2 printed out in front of me, sewing away.


  1. These are great! Far left, third down, is my favorite! I LOVE that background fabric! Isn't it funny how there is a distinct line of weather with this storm system? I have nothing at my home in Lincoln County.

  2. trees are looking good, wondering what template you used for them, maybe I should not know as I will be tempted to buy it! No snow here but tremendous winds yesterday, all quiet this morning.

  3. I love this quilt! The simple trees and the border of Christmas lights are so fun. How big will you make it?
