Celtic mystery part 2 and 3

I am still working away on Bonnie Hunter's mystery, Celtic solstice. This weekend I finished part 2 and 3 which puts me up to date - for now. Lots of little pieces and units including chevrons and pinwheels. I have changed several of the colors and right now I am seeing a lot of tan. Eek, I hope the next clue brings in more of the green or teal. :)

I decided to try Bonnie's method of making half square triangles using the Easy Angle tool. It is always great to try a new technique and I have had this ruler for years and had no idea how to use it. This picture gives you an idea of how it is used and Bonnie gives a great explanation on her blog. I am not sure if I got as accurate results as other methods I have used but I think it would be a great way to make HST's out of Jelly roll strips.

Looking forward to part 4.

I used her method for Easy Street and it worked great! Just saving Celtic Solstice this time around.
Looking good, Heather!

You've been busy!! That's a lot of cutting and sewing! The more you sew the more curious about how it will turn out, I bet you feel the same. :)

I thought about joining but I knew I would get behind. I like your fabric choices.

Your mystery blocks look great. I really like the tans. It will be fun to see what happens next!
