Design Wall Monday: Orca Bay and more!

Weekend recap:  I sold three quilts at the library craft fair on Saturday!  In turn I purchased a few Christmas gifts and indulged in a batch of delicious peanut brittle.

Back in the studio: here's Sophie Anne's quilt, all finished except the label.   I had planned to put the words in the border but it was too much yellow.  The starry 'stained glass' print reins in the brights without dulling them. The words work just fine on the back along with a little owl. (The nursery has an owl theme.)....and Sophie Anne isn't due until the end of this week!

"Jolly Jester" will be swapped at the P.E.O. Christmas ornament exchange. (I maintain that ornaments don't have to go on the tree.)  This wallhanging is 18 x 24.  The pattern is by Pat Sloan. It was featured in the December, 2006, issue of McCall's Quilting.

And, finally:  my progress on Step 1 of Orca Bay, the 2011 Quiltville mystery.  I'm using Bonnie's colors (black, neutral plus red and blue).  

Check out other design walls at Patchwork Times and other Orca Bay progress at Quiltville's Mystery Monday.

  1. Well done on all your quilty work today. I haven't started the Orca Bay QSTs yet, and now I'm wondering how long it will take to get 60 / day done this week.

  3. Congratulations on selling three quilts! The ultimate compliment on your work is that someone is willing to pay for them, not just get them as a gift or donation. Good job!
