Celtic Solstice Clue 4 Complete

Four patch fun!  I spent this weekend working on Clue 4 of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt -- Celtic Solstice.  I'm happy to say that I am done with Clue 4!!!  Now I can get back to casually working on those chevrons from Clue 2.  I just don't know why I can't get those chevrons done...
 
I am using grey in place of Bonnie's orange and brown in place of Bonnie's green.  I think sometimes the clues take me a little longer than they should because I am using the smallest of scraps that I can.  Then when I make the block it seems like every time I turn over the block after pressing that I have to sit and admire it because I just can't believe how great the colors go together.  Then I think...I should make a quilt with fabrics like this...  and on and on.
 
Here's what I have done so far.
 
I'm not sure if I'm liking the bright pinks, but we shall see.
 
For the four-patches... 
For the SMALL quilt you will need  120 Orange/Green 4-patches
For the LARGE quilt you will need 300 Orange/Green 4-patches.
These will be made with green and orange 2” strips, and will measure 3-1/2” when sewn, finishing at 3” in the quilt.

I only have 35 chevrons done.  Looks like I should work on the 209 more of the 244 chevrons needed.

I linked this post up with the Quiltville linky party for Clue 4.  Check out what everybody is doing.

  3. Girl, you have my number! Those chevrons .... admiring the progress ... I can relate. I love to see the different color combinations. I was very bold and substituted red for the orange. LOL

  4. You got step 4 done so quickly, perhaps you will have time this week to get some more chevrons sewn. I'm really looking forward to seeing how Bonnie puts all these parts together!
