Orca Bay Top Moves To The Mountain


Did you feel the earth rock and roll a little bit here in SW WA???  That was me, jumping up and down.  ;0)

Orca Bay is a finished quilt top.  All the little birds in the air blocks that were sewn wrong (as seen in today's DWM post) were taken apart and sewn right and reattached as the outer border.  After Dozer's photo shoot, OB was folded with the seams to the inside (channeling my sweet friend Pam B) to protect them and has been moved to the top of Mt. ToBeQuilted.

I have pulled the backing and binding fabric and it is laying on the ironing board.  Hopefully this week it will be sewn and put with the completed top.

If you don't know about the Orca Bay Mystery, you can find the instructions here.  Thank you Bonnie Hunter for another fabulous mystery.

Quite an amazing feat to move a mountain....especially when you're under the weather!

Congrats on the finish. I have the lil strings done, and that is it. Too many other things have gotten in the way since this mystery started this year.

Congratulations! What a beautiful rendition of Orca Bay! I think my Orca Bay will be an "in-progress" sort of thing for awhile yet. Love how your cat is so at home on your quilt.

way to go! It's fantastic! Hope your quilting mojo lasts and your get this one quilted soon-it's too beautiful to remain a flimsy for too much time.

That is a FABULOUS finish!! Those are her original suggested colors, right? It's just beautiful...I'd be jumping up and down too! I love the idea of Mt. To-Be-Quilted...

Your Dozer is very cute...could be related to my orange and white boy...

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

That handsome kitty looks a lot like my sweet boy and your Orca Bay looks good too. Didn't you wonder at times if you would ever get it done? I do.

Congrats on getting it completed! I can't believe how that cat is sitting up on it though; made me laugh so hard.
