Design Wall Monday 1/13/14

I have finally broken down and started piecing the blocks for Celtic Solstice. I am not finished with the green and orange 4 patches..I think I still need some of the 60 degree white/blue units for the 54-40 or Fight blocks..and I KNOW I have not done one of that unit in orange for the border. HOWEVER....I'm kinda sick of units and I want to piece BLOCKS. :::sheepish grin::: I will continue on those units piecemeal and as leaders and enders. I saw someone on the Monday Link up at Quiltville's quips and snips, that they had pieced the block with the chevron units differently. I am SUCH a star lover, that I decided to do some of each. Here are the two ways I will be using.

The only difference in these blocks is the chevron units are turned pointed out
on the 'square' blocks and turned in on the stars.
There will be 16 of the top block
and 9 of the star. The placement of the outer unit stays the same in both blocks
and that will keep the circular optical illusion
in tact.
 
I am also piecing Blueberries in the Park  blocks together.
That quilt is at the bottom of that post.
 
Thanks for visiting!

Love how the dark blue sets off your blocks. It will be very striking when you get it done.
