Orca Bay Mystery Part 5

Part 5 of the mystery quilt and this week we had to make 700 triangles to attach to each side of the HSTs we made in Part 3 ( in the bowl)

So far I have done 250, so only a little 100 to go !!

Bundles of 10........

Here are the 250 units so far....

I am rapidly coming to the end of blacks from my stash - in fact a lot of my blacks are heavily patterned compared to some other ladies who are doing the quilt but I am just going to go with it.   All part of the fun!

As usual I'm linking this post to Bonnie's blog, so pop  over and have a wee peek at everyone else's progress.

I am loving th link up this year.  Last year I did my very first Bonnie mystery quilt and had no one to talk to or compare notes with.  This year has been great !!

Have a great week everyone.

I like your patterned blacks. Wish I had some like that !

Hi Rhianon, Your blacks have great patterns on them. I think it is nice to have patterns rather than just solid colours. I need to add a bit more to mine. You have definitely made better progress than me.

I agree with the others, great patterns! This mystery quilt is definitely a lot of fun and you are right that having the linky party makes it more exciting!

Good work on getting the next step finished already. Love the variety in your blacks. It will give a lot of interest to the finished quilt.

Your blocks look so organized laid out in neat piles and rows. Isnt it amazing how much fabric all these little pieces are using up?
