How I do love a mystery. And this Orca Bay offering by Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville.com) is a very good one, albeit my first one. I have also enjoyed going through past mystery patterns. I understand that this is the first time that the Mr. Linky has been used, and I agree it is a wonderful addition. It is a lot of fun seeing the interpretation that everyone around the world is doing.
So now I have cut 350 - 2 3/8 squares re-cut to 700 triangles and have sewn (and sewn and sewn) them onto either side of the 350 hst's. These look great.
the chain of triangles sewn to hst's
Triangle #2 sewn to opposite side...a chain waiting to be pressed and clipped.
Because I know these were stacks of ten...I know that I have 70 still to convert.
Re-stacked in batches of ten, they are easy to keep track of this way. I look forward to using more of the yellow/orange, the blue green and the red/violet. Bring on Step 6, etc etc. This is a lot of fun.
Like the rest of you there are other considerations in our lives and not the least of which was having my granddaughter here on Friday for her 7th birthday cake at Grandma's and a sleepover.
