Orca Bay is a Flimsy!!!!!





Linking this up for Bonnie's linky party! I can't wait to see all the other Orca Bay quilts. So far I haven't spotted one in my colors...usually I follow Bonnie's color scheme but this time I didn't and whew, it all worked out!
Zoe couldn't resist posing on the quilt as I took pictures. Really hard to get a good photo of this HUGE quilt in the house at night...tried the bed, having my oldest son hold it and finally clearing a space by the front door. Tomorrow I will do my best to drag it out on the driveway in the sunshine for more photos. Worth every minute and all that unsewing. Thanks again Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville, from your number one fan!
Orca Bay/Long Lake/Green Bay. Ros said she might quilt it with a whale panto in commemoration of Orca Bay but I am wondering if she has a football panto, LOL! I should also say this is my UFO for Judy's number one draw...so other than getting a backing and binding together I have just about met that February goal! (Ros sent me this football panto, I think it is a winner!)
Edit * got the new pic on top though it wasn't too sunny when I got home!
Can't wait for the next Bonnie Hunter mystery! Thanks again Bonnie, from your number one fan!

I tried to post a comment earlier on your yesterdays post, I knew you'd end up winning, I have to put the top and bottom border on and then I'm done too, I love the way your Orca Bay/Long Lake/Green Bay turned out, Great Job :)

I haven't seen any in your colors, either, but I'm glad you used them, they worked out beautifully. Great quilt.

The green yellow /combo is really pretty! Good job!

It does kind of look like a Packers quilt, maybe the football themed panto would be perfect. My granddaughters would love it. I like it too. It's so fun to see the different color schemes used.

I really wish I would have done a yellow/gold instead of blue. Your's looks stunning. I also like how you pulled the gold into the center of the star, very nice!!

Your colors are smashing!! I think you've got a unique color-way there, something I'm always trying for. Mine is pink, green and purple and I love it. Great job!

Kathy said...

You have a unique color scheme and it looks great!

It's gorgeous, both yours & BJ's version. Matthew adored BJ's flimsie he rolled around in it for ages before I sneaked it away I was afraid he would loosen some of the outside seams!
I am still envious that I couldn't do this one........

Amazing work! It looks terrific! I love the yellow, it gives the stars a little room to breath so that they show up. Congratulations on a HUGE finish.
