Benjamin Biggs Block 2.

I was going great guns on Block 2 this week.  Finished the centre of the block by back basteing the large pieces, it's such a good method to keep everything stable and in place whilst stitching.
These blocks are 16" (finished), so lots of large pieces to fill the block.
Last night,I glue basted the outside corner buds ready to stitch today.
I was looking at block 1 this morning, and what did I see?
Luckily, I hadn't sewn the buds down on Block 2.
Back to the drawing board!

Celtic Solstice

Well, a blogging emergency was averted this morning.  I always carefully store my camera cable, I always know where it is so I can upload photos when I want to.
Somehow, I've filed it away very safely so it hasn't been seen for 4 days!  I've been panic stricken.  How to upload the photos?
I've never taken the SD card out of my camera before to transfer data- probably because I was oblivious to the fact that you could!  Oh dear. I'm technology challenged.  My DD's just look at me and shake their heads.
Anyway, I've had lessons on SD card removal and photo transfer.
So, here is my finished Celtic Solstice.
Dare I say it, it's ready to go off to the quilter!
This quilt was last year's Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt.  We started the Friday after Thanksgiving, and had the last clue on New Year's Day.
Imagine how good it feels to have finished this quilt already.
I'm very happy.
I'm linking up with Bonnie Hunter's  mystery quilt Link-Up.  Please go and have a look at what everyone has been up to.
