Myself along with many, many online bloggers who happen to be quilters are working away on Bonnie Hunters new mystery quilt, Orca Bay. I did RRCB last year...still not finished...but I digress...it is close to being finished.
First step was posted. I read it. Then read it again. It was several days before I got started with the holidays just getting into full swing. So, when I did sit down (or stand) to cut the fabrics, it seemed to take forever. I did not purchase the easy angle ruler, I cute squares first, then the quarter triangles from the squares. I cut. And I cut. And I cut.
This week, I'm working on the second step. This little blocks are very fun!! I love string piecing thanks to Bonnie!!! Here are the first ones I have done. Believe me I know exactly how many of these little gems I need. The directions are taped to the wall behind the sewing machine and I highlighted all the important information....like how many to make!!
You can stop by Bonnie's blog HERE to see others progress on this quilt...there are lots of links...and it is fun looking at others works and colors.
