Above is my Orca Bay progress. I have changed the pattern up a little bit...sounds like me huh? I really loved the red string blocks, but they were quite stretchy in the final product, and distorted...I think I stretched them when I removed the papers. So I did not cut them all, and will use them in another project. What I DID want to do was to use some of the fabulous reds that I won in the Christmas quilting party that I went to! So, I used whole pieces of red, not strings...and I like it! I think it showcased the pieces of red, and the blue brings movement diagonally to the quilt, which I just love. Here it is all laid out, but no blocks are sewn together yet...and I am really looking forward to the yummy border!! I like that so very much. Thank you, Bonnie, for this fabulous pattern...I know I would have been a bit intimidated to make this pattern...but the mystery? Makes it a piece of cake!!!
Thank you, Lyn!! Lyn sent me the most wonderful Christmas present...this quilt! Perfect for Valentines, and I already have it up on my wall.
Lyn also sent me these fabrics, which insist on not being photographed...but trust me, they are gorgeous!!!
This picture is for Jo, at Jo's Country Junction...she found her blocks like this and wanted to know what I did for the border...so this one is for you, Jo!!
Have a great day, all!!
