Design Wall Monday - Orca Bay - 2/6/12


Those of us who are linking up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times - Design Wall Monday -
and -
Those of us who are playing along with Bonnie Hunter's ORCA BAY MYSTERY QUILT -
are linking up today. Check out our progress on her blog - Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!
We are all working at our own pace - following along with her clues -

First - I want to thank Bonnie Hunter for a wonderful Mystery Quilt!!

And I want to congratulate everyone who FINISHED the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt!!


As for me -

I’m still working on mine - ;))


If you have been following my progress -

On my version of Bonnie’s Orca Bay Mystery Quilt -

That I call Orca Bay Bones -

You know that I hit a major snag -

On Saturday -

I got some pieces up on the wall -

And didn’t like it -

So I decided to go back to the original plan -
Bonnie’s version -
With the red geese framing the black blocks -

But since I didn’t have much time left -
I just laid out a smaller one -
Wallhanging size - 3x3 -

Nothing is actually SEWN together yet -

And it doesn't have the borders -

But it IS up on the wall - ;))

Again - Congratulations to EVERYONE who FINISHED ORCA BAY!!

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Soooo??? Am I still staying tuned?

  2. Hey, you've made progress and that's what counts. I'm still cutting out triangles for step 4 so you are ahead of me :-) Your top looks good so far.

  3. I haven't been 'around' much but love the way your Orca Bay is turning out. I think I like the red strings over the solid, though.... (Now you had to know I'd have something to say :-) )

  4. It took me almost 2 years to finish my Carolina Christmas, It's only been about 3 1/2 months since Orca Bay finished. I think you're doing fine.

  5. I'm still plodding along with my Orca Bay, too. But it will come together someday! What you have up on your wall looks good--I don't have a whole lot more than you. We can enjoy the journey at a more leisurely pace! : )


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
