Celtic Solstice Mystery Part 1

Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville Started her yearly mystery quilt the day after Thanksgiving.  I was planning to start when we got home from Minnesota trip, but I have a customer waiting for 2 Kings Size T-shirt Quilts by December 16th.  So, now that the quilts are done and mailed.  I was able to get started on trying to catch up on the parts.  They started part 4 today, and I just finished part 1.  This year, the quilt is called Celtic Solstice and the colors are very Irish indeed.  We are using blues, greens, oranges, yellow and neutrals as the colors.  Also she gave you to different size choices, a large which is a (king) and small (full/double),  my choice was the King size.  Not sure that was a good choice!
Part 1 was made up of making 380 Triangle
units for the large quilt.  140 of the units are blue and orange and 240 are blue and neutrals.  
After you cut all the pieces out using the Tri- Rectangle rulers.  You start by sewing all the right side wing pieces on all the triangles.  That was lot of chain piecing.  Once all the right were on I then sewed all the left wing pieces on the opposite site of the triangles.  After cutting all the chains apart I then pressed all 380 open.  All measure unfinished at 3 1/2" square.

Now, I'm moving on to Part 2 which is making 244 chevron units.

Hope you all are enjoying preparing for your  Holiday's.
