Design Wall Monday: Orca Bay and more!
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).
