Orca Bay Mystery Quilt - I've made a start

Last night  I finally made a start on my Orca Bay Mystery Quilt.   1 little 2.5inch square hourglass block - only a couple hundred to go~!
Two little 3.5inch square blue string blocks ... only 70 to go.   These are a lot of fun to make.  I am using Carol Doak foundation papers to sew these on (because that is what I had otherwise I would have cut up an old phone book as Bonnie suggests).

These blocks will come to life this weekend I hope.

I can't wait to see the next step ... hopefully it will be the red blocks.

Happy Quilting for now ..... Jane

You have to start somewhere, ONE block at a time.

Love your fabrics, I would have loved to use Civil war fabrics too, but I have only just started buying them.

I like the way yours is turning out.

You have a beautiful start, and it's not a race, so we can just all enjoy it together.

Even just one little block is progress. Hopefully, you have had some time to work on them.
