Orca Bay - 11/21/11

Orca Bay - 11/21/11

Those of us who are playing along with Bonnie Hunter's ORCA BAY MYSTERY QUILT -are linking up on Mondays.  Check out our progress on her blog - Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!
We are all working at our own pace - following along with her clues - it is NOT a race.  ;))
This is what I've been working on this past week.

So I dug out some more neutrals -

And even found some frogs - dogs - and bunny rabbits - ;))

I’m not really sure about some of my white prints with black in them -
But I cut one strip from each just in case -
(I can always use them in something else - right?)

Some of my strips have a cream background - but I think that will be OK -
I’m trying to stay away from the ones that are too tan -

And I really like the ones with the little “doo-dads” as Bonnie calls them -

Pulled out my black fat quarters -
And some left-overs from the B/W/R quilts I’m making for the grandkids -
Top row - not sure about the black with white -
Or the gray on the right end -
And the first three on the bottom row (left-overs) probably have too much red in them -

So I just cut a few black strips -
And made some twosies -

When I get these few together -

Think I’ll have an even 10?

Of course not -

Count ‘em -

I’ll only have 9 - ;))

But I'm having fun -

And between this and my Floral applique -

It keeps me out of bars at night - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Great fabrics. I am also left handed.

  2. Your quilt will be so interesting, like an eye spy. I am having fun with Bonnie's mystery too.

  3. Ohhhhhh very nice! Keep adding the white with black....the more there is the better it looks! I'm at the rolling around in the stash picking my fabrics for this one.....I'm taking it sllloooowwwwllllllly.

  4. I have downloaded all of Bonnie's 'mysteries' and do you think I've done any of them? I always think I have so many scraps until I start looking at how many of the same color ways is required for her mysteries and I am trying so hard to use what I have on hand..... maybe some day.

  5. Your fabrics look wonderful. It's fun to have fabrics with interesting motifs :)

  6. I think all your colors look great, I love the little doo-dads, too.

  7. Great progress - I was a little less careful in my fabric selection and threw in just about everything if it had the right background colour. I included red/black/white among others. I hope it was not a mistake!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
