Monday Design Wall and ORCA Blocks

Oh how I wish for just one more week off. I am almost finished quilting a top and need a little time for binding. I am almost finished Step 5 of Bonnie's Orca Bay Mystery and have a good start on Step 6 -- a couple more days off would catch me up completely. But alas -- not gonna happen.

Not to mention, progress on my "Dance with the Tiger" below is coming along. The setting blocks are ALMOST done (a little peek of the 25-patch blocks below) ... I will share Step 2, Block 2 tomorrow for those who are interested. Step 1, Block 1 instructions are here. After all the blocks are done, I will label the rows and remove from the wall for assembly and quilting later-- this quilt is not due until the end of February.

Not to waste my last day off, I have left-overs for lunch and supper. No shopping, no housework, just sewing -- well maybe a little housework -- and a little blog surfing to see what others are up to.

Now to link up with Judy at Patchwork Times along with other Monday Design Walls, and Bonnie for the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt progress.

I love 'Dancing with the Tiger' so much that I will be adding it to my must do list. Thanks for the instructions.

I love both your projects! Those Clue 6 blocks look great on point and I'm going to take a look at the instructions of that other block you've posted. Great job!
