On The Wall

Like many other people this morning, I have my Orca Bay quilt laid out and ready to be sewn into rows. 
It took several hours and much searching of those tiny pictures to get this one laid into rows.  It is such a busy quilt with all of those string blocks.  But I don't think I would change a thing.  This is one quilt where I did not worry too much about fabric placement.  The main thing I worked with was the yellow centers.  There are two of each fabric.  One in the dark block and one in the light. So I did attempt to keep the two apart.
Here is a close up of the two rows I have together as of this morning.  This is the first quilt where those dancing cats appear. That is a fabric I filched from my mother.  She contributed several of the blacks that appear in this quilt. 

Well, as soon as this is posted I can get back at it.  So I'm off.

Be sure to check out all of the design walls at Patchwork Times  and of course the home of Orca Bay Quiltville .

Have a great day.

Very nice. I've been gone all weekend so I haven't gotten to work on the last two parts yet. I can't wait to see it come together.

Excellent!! LOVE the color-way. I make mine different too--purple, pink and green. I was a little scared that it wouldn't be as wonderful as Bonnie's but, I like mine WAY more!!

Happy quilting!!
