This is the mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice, by Bonnie Hunter. She instructed us to go to Lowes and get paint cards in the following colors, listing the darkest color on each card they are:
I have been working on this quilt since December and finished the top yesterday. Bonnie Hunter gave clues weekly, starting on November 29. I got behind with my sewing in December when we were in Columbus for the birth of Samantha and again for Christmas. My favorite machine, the Husqvarna Viking Quilt Designer, had an issue when I was starting clue two and had to go in for repair. I got out my white Singer Featherweight to sew the chevron blocks. It doesn’t run as fast as I like, so then I switched to my Janome 10001. In the mean time, I received a call that my Viking was fixed. I went to Fort Wayne to get my machine and finished assembling the quilt on the Viking.

Oh, my goodness! This is gorgeous. What a beautiful quilt you have made. The idea that you were instructed to get and use the paint cards as your color guild fascinates me. It definitely worked because the colors are lovely. Great job. genie

Nice result, in spite of the obstacle race. I, too, had sewing machine issues so I understand..
