Design Wall Monday, Orca Bay progress

little Orca Annie 001

Obviously not the whole quilt-just the units on the wall to give me an idea of how it will look when it all comes together. When I first placed the pieces, I was dismayed that I couldn’t see the overall pattern, neither could MOTH. I took some pictures, thinking I would be ahead of the game for Design Wall Monday, and shared them with a friend. It wasn’t until I was describing the blocks to my non-quilter friend that I saw a mistake-a really big mistake! I had done the stars with the dark background (aqua) wrong, they weren’t stars at all, the way I sewed them.  Spent yesterday frogging and remaking those blocks.

Pay a visit to Patchwork Times to see what others have on their design walls.

Ugh, I hate that kind of major mistake! I have a few of my blocks together for Orca Bay but no pictures yet.

I love the color combination. It's going to look fantastic when it's done.

I love your colors! I'll be frogging right along with you as I sewed 12 sets of 2 strips for a background for an applique quilt & my table must not have been pushed up tight to my machine because all of my strips have perfect 1/8" seams instead of 1/4" :(

I love the color palette you've chosen. It is very pretty!

It is beautiful! I hate when I have to unstitch pieces, I feel for you. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

I see the difference, now, and what you mean by overall pattern. I think it's lovely.
