Thought I would share a picture of Orca Bay (from Bonnie's 2011 Mystery) before the black binding was added -- it will take me a while to finish the hand work and could not wait to show her off. The backing was perfect -- WILD! I used variegated turquoise / aqua blue quilting thread and quilted border to border swirls (something I have never done). Because the quilt has a lot of piecing, no one will notice my swirls were a little shaky here and there.
Now that Orca Bay is done, I am ready for the 2012 Quiltville Mystery!
