Orca Bay Progress Report & a Finish!
I’m stuck on step 5 of the Orca Bay mystery quilt on Quiltville’s blog here. Maybe I should recount my foundation papers because the pile doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller. I had a great sewing day with my friend Terry yesterday. We ended at about 4:30 pm, just about the time our realtor called to say there was a showing request for the next morning (today!).
I looked around at ‘quilting central’ in my sewing room, and knew we had a lot of work to do to get the house ready to show. So, long story short, my step 5 is still in progress. I’m loving the colours of my rusty red triangle strings.
I have done nothing on Step 6 or 7 and am hoping to get caught up before the big New Years Day reveal! Wish me luck…
But here’s something I did manage to finish this week during my vacation days:
This is one of the quilt tops I finished at my November retreat. And this was my first bigger quilt done on my B-Line frame with my Janome 6500. Not a bad job but definitely still in the ‘practice’ category. But the important thing is that my daughter LOVES the quilt. It’s got a minky type backing on it which was a challenge in itself but that’s what my daughter wanted, so minky it was. And batting too. Yup…quilt top + batting + minky. It’s a heavy quilt that will be sure to keep her warm.
I better catch some sleep if I hope to get those triangles done tomorrow. It’s been a long day.
Until next time,
