Happy Thanksgiving All!  Enjoy your turkey and all the trimmings!

This week finds me working on the first clue of the Bonnie Hunter Mystery called Orca Bay. Check it out, you may want to get in on the fun.  Below is my progress- I am about half way through the first clue with the quarter square triangles that I just need to sew into hourglass units. I am using gold instead of the black that Bonnie uses for this step.  My other colors are below, purple, greens and neutrals-all from the stash.

Clue #1


Orca Bay Fabrics
Don't forget to take some time out from sewing to go shopping on Black Friday!!  Have a great week!

See what everyone else is working on at Patchwork Times.

  2. I'm doing it too! I love the colors you chose. I'm using green, pink and purple with neutral. Will end up taking me about 8 hours to make the 244 QSTs but I'm almost done! Hope this is one of her more difficult hints!

  3. I am sewing Bonnie's mystery too. I like your colors. I am glad to see someone else not using black and white. Mine are blues and creamy yellows. Ours will really be mysteries!

  4. Pretty golds. You've made a lot of progress so far, this step does seem to be taking a lot of time. I'm sure it will seem easy compared to the string blocks coming up. So worth it in the end though.
