The Next Big Thing – Orca Bay Mystery Quilt

Well, I seem to love a mystery.  I just finished up on the Carol Doak Twisting Mystery Quilt and I am about to embark on the next big mystery – Bonnie Hunter’s Orca Bay Mystery Quilt.  Bonnie spoke at the Trinity Valley Quilters Guild last year and I am a BIG fan!  So this will be a real treat!

I am a bit behind already – I have just now raided my stash for the fabrics needed and ordered a couple of recommended rulers.  Here are my fabrics:

The mystery quilt instructions call for a variety of contrasting colors – Bonnie suggests reds, blues, neutrals and blacks.  Her instructions in the intro to the mystery quilt give approximate yardage.

At first, I didn’t think I had many reds (which I needed the most of), but I forgot about the two big red quilts I’ve done in the last two years.  Here are my reds:

I knew I had lots of blues:

I hope my neutrals are neutral enough:

And I hope my blacks are black enough:

So, while I wait for my rulers to come I will press and organize my fabrics and watch the progress of the other participants.  If you are interested in participating, check out Bonnie’s Quiltville web site!  It will be a lot of fun!!!
