Scottish Celtic Soltice Clue 1 Finished

These are my original choices but I took out a few and added some others as I began.
My theme is Scotland, where many of my ancestors came from
North Carolina, where my family (except me ) live now and I did much of my growing up.
Yellow for the Gorse in Scotland and the sunshine of NC
Green for the trees and bushes of Scotland and NC
Blue for the Flag of Scotland, the St Andrew's Cross and the beautiful blue skies of NC
Tan for the peat that kept my ancestors warm in Scotland and the wonderful beaches of NC
White for the sheep that give the wool for kilts of proud Scotsmen and women and the Dogwood flowers at Eastertime in NC

So clue one is finished!
That is 92 units with sand colored triangles and 96 units with white triangles and the same green smaller triangles...I think Doreen Speckman called the smaller triangles Spike and the larger triangles Peaky.
I finished the last 36 or so on my Singer 27-4 treadle and it was a good way to get some experience.  I am not a very smooth treader and hope the more I use it the better I will get.
Now the wait is on for Clue 2 next Friday morning!
Oh, and the Inklingo part went smoothly it's the sewer who is at fault for the mistakes! LOL
You can see many other quilters who are reporting in on Monday Dec 2 for the first Linky Party at Bonnie's Blog

I LOVE to do up my sets of 10, the stacks seem like a savings account growing or something :)

I'm also going for more Scottish than Irish symbolism - I like yours and your color choices!
