Orca Bay Clue Three in Progress!

I have had a knee injury and so spent the weekend literally on the pull out couch downstairs. Tonight I finally made it up the stairs to my quilting studio so I could at least say I started Orca Bay (Long Lake, lol) clue three! I managed to put together eight more of clue two (total nine done, 63 to go) and did a sheet of clue three as well!
Clue one at the top, two in the middle and three on the bottom (complete with my mess up on clue two which may get trimmed down as a happy mistake for clue three).
I had to play a little bit too!
So there 23 of clue three done and only 327 to go, roflmfao. Perhaps I should half this quilt? On the up side, only one more week of regular classes left then it is finals week. I should be able to have NOTHING work related to do for at least a week or so over break before I bust in to getting ready for next semester. Only two ASL classes to prep for next semester though and I taught them this semester so much of the work is now done! YAY.
Even though I don't have much time to sew, I am loving every blasted minute of Orca Bay! If you are one of the rare folks who hasn't heard of it or isn't doing it...it isn't too late! Go to quiltville.com and find the clues!

Step by step, I'm sure you'll get there soon. Glad I'm not the only one looking forward to catching up over Christmas break. Pretty colors too, cheery yellows.

Your blocks look great. No one says you have to finish each week. You are loving it and that's what really matters. I am loving it too!

I'm keeping up this time, but I'm hoping to finish my Iowa (Carolina) Christmas for this year. That was 2 years ago mystery. Love the sunny yellows and green.

Your quilt is going to warm up all who snuggle under it with those beautiful yellows.
