Orca Bay Top COMPLETE!!!

Yeah, I have finished my Orca Bay top, I decided to make it slightly smaller than intended but I'm happy with the result. I left off one row on the side and one row on the bottom and then added a 2 1/2" border. Although I am really happy with my colors I could not picture it queen size on a bed as it is very busy and I have decided to gift it to my Mom who just turned 82 this week. She was visiting at Christmas and helped snipping pieces apart to press etc. She was asking me the other day if I had it finished yet and I told her I would send a picture when I got it done. She wants to show her friends what she helped with. Then I had a lightbulb moment and decided I will send her the quilt instead of a picture.
I'm going to try and keep the momentum going today and pin it on my machine and quilt it, so off to get a back prepared.

Here is my sister(one of them-there are 2 more), my Mom and me at Christmas this year..........


  1. wow you got the top done. sound like you will have it quilted soon too. Looks good.

  2. Got it about halfway quilted before supper, I think That's a good stopping point for today. See how far I get in the evenings after work this week.
