Orca Bay - 2/7/12

So - I plastered something up on the wall yesterday -

So that I could link up with everybody -



It is just Waaaaaaaaaay TOO BUSY for me - ;((

Absolutely NO reflection on Bonnie or her quilts -

I LOVE her quilts -

And I LOVED her “Christmas Lights” quilt
That I made a couple of years ago -

But THIS quilt -
In THESE colors -
And MY fabrics -
With all of the STRING blocks -
And all of the “MOVEMENT” -
Is just TOO BUSY for me -

So I played with it -

And played with it -

And -

I STILL don’t like it -

So I pulled off all of the RED -
And got back down to the BONES -

I DO like the Black/White star blocks -
And I like how MY version extends the black stars -
So I’m keeping those for sure - ;))

Put the blue string blocks back -
Nope - still too busy -
Plenty of movement without them -
And I lose my star points -

I DO like the white/neutral geese -
Framing the white blocks -
Really makes the extended black stars shine -

Back to the cornerstones -
Try the blue strings again? -
Nope - still too busy -
Sorry - no blue string blocks in this one -

I do like the extra shot of color, though -

What about some red? -
That is a possible maybe -

What about some black? -

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Wow you're really putting a lot of thought into your Orca Bay Bones. I'm not exactly sure if you have decided on your plan yet, but you sure have some lovely options.

  2. I thought I left a post, but I don't see it. Anyway, just wanted to add that I think any one of your layouts would be lovely, but strangely enough since it is the plainest, but I think I'm partial to nbr. one.

  3. NOW you're cookin'!! White geese - yes. Blue strings - NO. Black or Red squares - no. Red star centers - YES!! YEs! Yes!

  4. I like the no string blocks version. The red in the corners is probably my favorite. The black is too dark and draws my eyes to it. Maybe a dark grey instead if not the red? But you're getting there...what will you do with the leftover pieces?

  5. I like the no string blocks with the white centers.


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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