I think I'm going to take the plunge into Orca Bay! This is Bonnie's new mystery. Check it out over on her blog - just follow Shamu here :)
But, today I was finishing up the quilting on another one of my recent projects, and pondering my next move. And I thought - Why Not? The mystery started last Friday and I've been drawn back to the page several times over the past 2 days. So I did a little bit of digging. Bonnie says the quilt was inspired by a sunset over Orca Bay - and to me sunsets are orange & purple. Two colours which I do have a reasonable amount of in my scrap bins. Blacks & neutrals are a bit more difficult, but Bonnie's pretty loose with the definition of neutral so I should be able to scrounge enough. And for black - I think I'll pass on the scrap idea and use a couple yards of solid black I have on hand and would love to see gone from my stash closet. Hopefully that won't throw the whole quilt out of whack, if the rest is scrappy and the black is just black.
First step - 224 2" quarter square triangles in black and neutral. Oh boy. I guess I need to get started :)
