Awaiting a final border!

 Good evening, everyone!  Above is my all-put-together Celtic Solstice.  Or you could call it Autumn Equinox, LOL!  It does kind of look like a fall time quilt to me. I tried to use what I had in the stash... Anyway, it is in one piece!!  The only thing left is to put the final border on. I don't care for any of my choices...so not sure what I will do.  I will look in the stash to see what I can find.
 But I am sure glad it is all together, to this point anyhow!!
I turned a couple of blocks the wrong way, and did not discover it until the top was together.  They are there to stay...no way I would ever take them out and fix them at this point!!


Thank you, Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville, for a really fun mystery quilt...this is your best pattern yet in my opinion!!!


Have a great night, all!

Julie

Nice job on the quilt and I do love the Fall colors. So good to used fabrics in your stash. I must admit when someone says they turned some blocks wrong I immediately try to find them. Well I could not find the in your quilt, so they must not be that noticeable. :)

I love to "vicariously piece" with you :-) Haven't stitched anything myself for weeks so I love watching so much progress at least in your sewing room!
The colors you chose look a lot like the tiled floors that Bonnie was inspired by. Lovely work!

Lori said...

Beautiful - and no one will notice the blocks unless you tell them :-)

I'm slow - but I'll get there. I can't wait to see mine put together.

Blessings,

I love its new name! The colors are perfect for it. Did you use up all the star point fabric, which is really background on the tall geese of the border. My first thought was more of that.

Elyte said...

It looks fabulous Julie, great colour choice and border finish.

Sarah said...

It looks great in your colours Julie! So different to the original, but so right. It definitely does have an autumn look about it.
