May Mystery Quilt Finish!


Not even the middle of the month and I have a finish on the calender!!! (and already cat tested and approved!)

With a little help from a friend I go the binding on my Orca Bay...this is a big quilt!  I really like the black binding on it.  Usually I like a pop of color or a stripe on the binding but the center of the quilt is so busy that I used and almost solid.  Orca Bay was Bonnie Hunter's  Mystery Quilt in 2011 (?) ...not recent but not too long ago!

BTW...if you are a Bonnie Hunter fan you want to be at my guild's show this October 11 and 12th!  Bonnie used to be a member of our guild (before she moved up to North Carolina) so with her permission we are doing a display of quilts made by guild members inspired by Bonnie!  Looks like we will have over 30 quilts as part of the display!  And yes, my Orca Bay will be one of them.  Think we will have at least one of her last four mysteries!  Our show is at the North Augusta Activities Center, 100 Riverview Park Drive, North Augusta, SC  29841.
