Design Wall Monday - Dec 5


My design wall this week is an Orca Bay wall.  Step 2 and 3 are on the wall - parts of them, anyway.  I have the final 31 orange string blocks from step 2. And the first 12 (of 350) 2" half-square triangles.

In addition, the Blogger's BOM is still up on my wall.  And the latest Monday Mystery from Sherri.

I didn't make as much progress on Orca Bay as I had hoped over the weekend.  I had great plans, but this cold has knocked me flat, and I only managed about 2 hours of sewing in total all weekend.  That was enough to convert this pile of strings into 41 blocks to finish step 2.  And I pushed myself through a few half-square triangles, just so I would have some progress on step 3 to show today. 

So I guess it's back to black and white land for me this week.  Need to finish 40 more blocks for step 1, and 338 for step 3. Hopefully before step 4 comes out on Friday.

Check out Bonnie's blog for more links to Orca Bay progress.
And don't forget to have a look at the other design walls over at Judy's blog.

  8. Glad to have your company on the Orca Bay...I too am not exactly keeping up....but then I am more like gentle waves lapping the shoreline, with doing this mystery. Loved your design wall, you have some beautiful blocks there.
