"Determination", almost finished!
I've showed bits and pieces of Orca Bay, now called "Determination", over the last few months - this project went on for a long time - I'm guessing there are well over 3000 pieces in this baby! It was started as a Mystery, from Quiltville.com, after Christmas, January 2012. The top went together quickly, but then I couldn't decide how to quilt it, especially wanting to emphasize the diagonal lines. Here it is, so far. I have the borders to finish, then the binding. There is a LOT of quilting on this project. The "light" is done in a pale variegated pink - a LOT of quilting, and the dark stars are quilting in dark blue, a simple continuous curving lines around the stars points and through the center. That outer border is a black marble - less dramatic than pure black. The Backing is a medium dark blue, and I used a variegated blue thread in the bobbin. The border went together so well - a miracle! Thanks Bonnie Hunter!
