Orca Bay - FINALLY a finish!

84" x 93" Orca Bay
I'll let the pictures tell the story......



Ummm....well.  I HAD intentions of having this finished in September!  That's when it was loaded on the quilting frame anyway. :\



And then, since I still had half the day left, I loaded Ann Marie's quilt on the frame.  
I had enough motivation to finish all the quilting in one sitting!
The fabrics are AMAZING sea-life batiks;  I used a 'wave-like' pantograph and some a blendable taupe thread color. 
Such a shame that the weekend has to come to a close.  :\

I am happy for you, I admired your color choice and Orca Bay is a grand quilt! I was thinking the same thing, ARE you planning on joining Easy Street?
Enjoy Monday, too ~

Gorgeous Orca Bay - love the colors! Doncha hate it when the weekend comes to a close just as you're hitting your quilting stride?!

Woo Hoo Congrats on getting your Orca Bay finished. I am still working on mine, slooooowwwwwwly. My quilt looks great. I know I have the binding laying around someplace, so it will be finished and ready to be used, soon after it makes it back to Florida. Glad I helped push your mojo back in the right direction. Now what colors are you doing Easy Street in???

I agree...weekends finish a day or too sooner than I would like! Orca Bay is amazing and Anne Marie's quilt looks good too!

Orca Bay looks lovely. I used to feel the same and feel that we needed a three day weekend, one day for schoolwork, one day for housework and shopping and one day for myself.
