Orca Bay Up dates


I have decided to participate in the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt after being made aware of it by my friend and fellow quilter Cathy Tomm and I am new to this whole blogging thing.

However, I do LOVE MQ's.

I chosen a triadic harmony of red/violet, blue/green, yellow orange and black/white.


I can read, but not always successful at the counting side of things...I have ended up with more of everything that I need so far. 234QST's and now 75 string blocks!

  3. I love your blocks and your colors are similar to mine. My hour glasses are black and orange, my strings are purple and my main color will be turquoisy blues.

  7. I wonder if this will be helpful - seeing that you have made too many string blocks - one of the Orca Bay quilters posted that she was using telephone book pages, and used the part with the page number on - and cut the correct number of pages to size, and then could keep track of how many she'd done, and how many to go, by looking at the page number. I guess one could also simply write the number onto the page as well. Margaret
