Earlier this week, Bonnie Hunter announced her next mystery, Celtic Solstice. I've been trying to decide whether I should follow her color scheme this year or go off on my own again.
You may remember my disaster last year when I chose my own color scheme and ended up with low contrast on the important star points (revisit that adventure here).
|This is from Bonnie's site-she is using the colors across the bottoms of the paint chip cards.|
I like Bonnie's choice of colors, but I have no brights in my stash. Well, maybe a few, but not enough to meet Bonnie's suggested fabric requirements.
My retro fabrics may work out for Celtic Solstice--I guess I will start pulling fabrics and see how I like the way they play together.
In the meantime, more retreat photos!
These are some of the projects that were in progress:
|Pretty in Pink!|
|Awesome design from Primitive Quilts magazine.|
|It was fun watching this come together.|
|Gorgeous Primitive Gatherings block of the week.|
|Sharyn picked this kit up at Colorz in the Cherrywood Shop.|
|Love this scrappy one!|
|This is my cousin Barb's fabulous Mrs. Billings done with Kaffe Fassett fabrics.|
|I had to show a closeup of the hexi flowers that will go on Mrs. Billings' next round.|
|Aren't they awesome???|
|These are so cute--Art to Heart designs, I believe.|
|Another Art to Heart design!|
|My birthday happened to take place during the retreat. |
I woke up to find my sewing machine having a party!
It was a fun surprise.
Coming soon....retreat show and tell!
