Monday Design Wall - Orca Progress

It's Christmas, and some of my design wall will have to wait until after the Holidays, but I am taking pictures for later. As for my progress on the ORCA Mystery, Parts I, II, III and almost IV are done. I have used blues in the aqua family and my reds are orange-reds. AND, in keeping with Bonnie Hunter's methods, I have used more of my white "2000 fabric". Using the ORCA Mystery as my "leaders and enders" for my special projects has helped me stay focused with the finish line in site for holiday gifts.

Have you picked your Christmas Present Yet???? I have, and it is ordered. The new Judy Laquidara Quilt Book, "60-Pieced Quilt Borders" will be coming out very soon and I have pre-ordered mine.

For more Design Walls, visit Judy at Patchwork Times and for progress on the ORCA Mystery visit Bonnie at Quiltville.

love your colors for Orca Bay and I don't know how I pieced before using Bonnie's Leader/ender method.

Your colors look fantastic! I was so glad we finally got to use the main color so we can see them all together. Great job.

You're colors look really great together! Good job in keeping up with the mystery steps - they are big ones. Thanks for the tip about Judy's book; I'll have to check it out.

Beautiful colors for the Orca Bay quilt.

I love both of these sites, and yours too! I still admire that orange monochromatic quilt of yours so if you ever find those block sizes...you know where to send them!

Thanks for showing your progress on the Orca mystery. I havent started yet, but it is on my mind!

I love your colors. Isn't this mystery just so fun? And I've ordered my book from Judy too. It's going to be hard to wait though.

I pre-ordered mine too. It will be my Birthday gift to myself next year.
