Orca Bay, Top Done
http://www.quiltville.com/, for this mystery quilt. And thanks also to Vic of http://victoria-carroll-parkhill.blogspot.com/ for her kind donations of black and whites when I ran out of my own. Who knew that "running out" could even be possible?
One photo looks more blue, the other, more pink. To me, it appears DONE!
My version looks a lot like other versions. While I want to see the diagonals more clearly, for now, without any quilting, I see circular images with my bleary eyes. One of the inside borders is sewn from the wrong side/direction - but I'll leave it as is, to add character - it's not easy to see in these photos. And there is one pink block, safety pinned for identification, that is tilted the wrong direction, to be fixed.
Has there been any official count of how many of this quilt has been made?
Next quandry, how to quilt this baby. I quilt on my own DSM, a Janome 6500. And I probably won't get to sandwiching it (in the garage) until warmer weather.
