Orca Bay - Ready for Quilting


My version of Orca Bay, Bonnie Hunter's 2011 Mystery Quilt is ready to be loaded on the quilting machine.  The teal blues and oranges/reds are brightly nestling the Ohio Stars  -- I love the black and white pieced border the best, which ties it all together.  With all of the talk about the upcoming 2012 Mystery hosted by Bonnie , I just had to get my rear in gear and "get-r done".
 

I am putting the back together, which is beautiful fabric of teals and reds.  I will need a close quilting design to hold the pieces together .... so ..... with the busy front, I just might practice a few new quilting designs (especially since they really won't show that much).  I have a notebook full of doodles that I can't wait to test.

Your Orca Bay is beautiful and your pic inspired me to pull out my blocks and pieces. Wish I was as far as you are, but I'll get there. Thanks for the inspiration!

Your Orca Bay is gorgeous! I'm still turtling along on mine-all the parts are done except for a few string blocks. I hope it looks half as good as yours when I get it done! Congratulations on a great finish.

Hey Jamie, are you interested in purchasing some used DVDs and books about quilting designs? I have lots around and since I've gone computerized they need to find a new home. "E" me if you are interested and I'll take stock of what I'm willing to part with and let you know what I have and the price.

GREAT quilt... how many gazillion pieces are in this one? Love the teals and reds!

It's gorgeous, Jamie! I really love her mystery quilts, but don't have the patience to deal with so many pieces!! So I'll just enjoy yours...... ;-)

Your Orca Bay is beautiful! I love the color changes you made. Mine is still missing the borders and I am hoping to finish up by the beginning of November. I can't wait to stop by and see it all quilted up. :)
