Orca Bay Catch Up......Not Quite!!

I don't know about you guys, but the last few days I haven't even been able to look in my sewing room, never mind get in there to sew!  Last night I thought I had better sneak in there to see where I had left off with the Orca Bay Mystery.  As it turns out, no Magic Quilting Fairies stopped by to get me caught up, everything was just as I had left it....
So I managed to get back at it....

some quarter square and half square triangle blocks waiting to be pressed!

   my blue 3.5" strip pieced blocks all done....phew!
and some of the little 1/2 square triangle blocks along with the little brown triangles to add on to either side. 
a few of the red strip pieced blocks, along with a basket full of strips to make many more!

I have tried to do at least a little of each step and have even managed to completely finish a step or two...yay me :)  Hopefully I can get into my sewing room and get caught up on this darn quilt one day soon!  But for now I think I will sit back and relax and bring out the Coxcomb Applique Blocks :)

Happy New Year Everyone,



  1. Not much sewing from my end since Boxing Day either. I love your colour choices.

  2. Your progress looks great; I love your fabric & color choices. I'm hoping to see the inside of my sewing room tomorrow, and over the weekend.
