On The Wall

Here is part three of my Bonnie Hunter Orca Bay mystery quilt.  This is 350 half square blocks that will finish at 1 1/2".  This part was a breeze.  I can't wait for Friday! 

This is my cardinal quilt pinned and ready for its quilting.  I am looking forward to seeing this one done.  I love the way the border turned out. Those flying geese finished at 1" x 2".  They are bonus triangles from my Christmas Tree Quilt that I made last year.  The Tree quilt is a Judy Laquidara pattern.  The cardinal quilt is a couple of Thimbleberry blocks I combined with my flying geese to end up with this.

Have a great Monday and week to come.

What a great use for your left over triangles. That whole project looks wonderful. And, good for you on Orca Bay. I'm passing and working on Carolina Christmas. Can you say behind?
