Orca Bay - Progress Report

Hi there,
I am pleased to say that after a small delay I have finally got my Orca Bay top finished !

After much pondering I decided to go for a scrappy green inner border.  I like the green in this quilt and wanted to add more.  Plus the fact I didn't have enough neutrals so green it was.

I'll be machnine quilting this but will stick to something simple.  Bonnie's designs are so dazzling it would be a waste to do complicated quilting.
I've put this at the top of my UFO pile becasue I really want it finished, bound and on my bed !

Bonnie, if you are reading this - thanks for a great mystery.  I wonder what you have in store for us this year !!!

See you all next time.
Rhianon.

Isn't it great to finish, your quilt is beautiful and I love the scrappy green border. It is always so interesting to see all the adaptations to one pattern. Thank you for commenting on my blog earlier.

This may sound crazy, but your colors make me think of copper (I love copper). The warm copperish colors with the green, which copper can turn. It is very beautiful!
And I agree--don't bother with a complex quilting pattern!
