Last Orca Bay Link Up


Here it is, my Orca Bay Mystery quilt! Well, the top anyway :-) I may send this one out for quilting, it will certainly get finished sooner if I do. I think the name Grizzly Bay sounds pretty good, but the bears in my border are black bears, so it doesn't really work. Black Bear Bay doesn't sound nearly as good to me. The bear fabric will be the backing too.

This was a really fun quilt to make, thank you so much Bonnie for doing these mysteries for us! If you'd like to see how everyone else is progressing on their Orca Bay Quilts, you can check here

I just took a look, and several quilts are completely finished, quilted and bound, some are just tops like mine, and other people are taking things a little slower. Since we all have varying amounts of time to sew available, makes perfect sense to me that we are all at different points. For those who haven't gotten their tops finished yet, keep at it, it's worth it!

Melodie , I love your Orca Bay. It postitively sparkles. Beautiful colours. Mine is just a finished top too - there was an awful lot of work in this quilt!

You have a gorgeous quilt and I really like the borders. I only did half of the blocks so my lap quilt is done. You have already done so much more work that I did! ~Jeanne

Your colors are spectacular! And, hey, by my count, it took over 50 hours to put this top together so only having the top done (like mine) is a job well-done in my book! I'm sending mine out too--too many seams on the back to try it on my domestic machine!

Love your quilt, and I think your two extra borders turned out wonderfully. Great job.

Beautiful colors on your Orca Bay! And it looks great with the extra border, too. Love the bear fabric!

I am one of those who hasn't finished the top yet, just like I haven't finished getting around to all of Bonnie's links to see everyone else's versions. This is so warm and beautiful! Love these colors together. I never would have thought of them together, but they harmonize so well. Great job!
