Orca Bay Mystery Quilt

I put the Orca Bay Quiltville Mystery 2011 button
on here a couple of weeks ago. It is my first mystery quilt. (Well, I've done a couple but I already knew the outcome so they don't count!) This mystery is run by Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville.
So the first week, starting November 18, I had to make quarter square triangles  - 224 of them! That's when I decided to do a smaller quilt - half the size! So I began - I dug out fabric scraps, I cut, I sewed,I pressed, I trimmed. I even learned to use the Companion Angle ruler that I didn't know I owned! Then I counted - 20 done and 92 to go. End of week 1.

Week two began November 25. I needed to make 36 string blocks. I got busy. I finished the string blocks yesterday!

Then I finished the quarter square triangles! Wow!

There is still hope!


  1. Your blocks are great. Have fun with the mystery.

  2. Great blocks, I can feel your enthusiasm!

  3. There's lots of hope you and your blocks are doing great. Warning though Bonnie's mysteries are habit forming most of us look forward to them all year long. Love your colors.
