I did get started on the piecing for my Orca Bay (Bonnie Hunter mystery from Quiltville). I must say that I liked my colors much better before I started putting it all together. While Bonnie’s “primary” color is red, mine should be green. But to me the green is lost. Anyway, at this time, I have two full rows of stars and 2 full rows of sashing completely sewn together as one full unit. In the picture I also have a full row of sashing and a partial row of stars. These rows are sewn, but not attached to the first unit. I also sewed together about 1/2 of one side of the border. I am thinking an outer border will be necessary.
I am also participating in Judy Laquidara’s (Patchwork Times) UFO Challenge again. Of course, she chose #5 for January–which in my case is Orca Bay. Probably not going to get this one done in January. In my case, I don’t have a lot of UFOs, but making the list each year and knowing I am responsible for knocking them off–and knowing I will be making a new list at the end of the year, well, that keeps me from going crazy.
How is your Orca Bay looking?
