Orca Bay Mystery Quilt - Parts 1 & 2 done

 Over the weekend I finished off Parts 1 & 2 of the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt.  I just have to cut off all the little ears on those hourglass units.
I was amazed at how much fabric you actually cut off and I couldn't bring myself to throw it away.   There has got to be something I can do with those little tiny bits ... thinking....


So now onto Part 3 ... and I can't believe the next step is 350 half-square triangle units in Black & Neutral - 2 inches that will be 1.5inches finished in the quilt - cute!

I have sewn all of these blocks on my little Singer Featherweight - it is a lovely machine to do straight stitching on, it just purrs along nicely.

Happy Quilting this week ... Jane x

Your blocks are looking great! I have a Singer Featherweight too! They are great little machines and so portable.

Looking good, I'm partial to the blues, so I'll watch and see how your blocks progress.
