Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville is having another of her Mystery Quilts. This time its called Orca Bay based upon a recent trip to Alaska.
While I haven't ever done one of Bonnie's mysteries, they always intrigued me. Despite the fact that I don't really have a ton of time to quilt, I decided to try this mystery. I'm still working on part 1, but I'm excited about this quilt. Its a "smaller" one of Bonnie's designs, so maybe I'll actually finish it.
Most people are up to step 3 and while I have looked ahead a bit, up to step 3 its still just piecing individual blocks. If I see a step that starts to get into assembly, then I don't plan on looking at it.
So far on part 1, I have made 4 QSTs that are 2.5" square. I have the pieces cut to make the remaining 220 QSTs, and have half of them marked. I hope the string piecing in part 2 goes a little faster than part 1. QSTs always seem to take a while, especially when you have to mark the pieces twice because I don't have the companion or easy angle rulers that would make it faster.
I'll post some pictures later this week once I get a few more QSTs made.
