Part 5 of Quiltville’s Orca Bay Mystery Quilt was published bright and early Friday morning. I really do love this mystery, just wish I had more time to savor each step. I feel so far behind! But there are good reasons – like seeing my granddaughter visit Santa:
But I did manage to get some of the Orca Bay project done this weekend. Part 5 builds on Part 3. Unfortunately, I haven’t finished Part 3! So Saturday, I devoted a couple of hours to Part 3 which calls for 350 half square triangles. I added 121 new half square triangles to the 74 I already had bringing my total to 195.
Today I added the Part 5 triangles to 35 half square triangles. A nice round 10% of what I’ll need in the end! Here they are:
Here is a close up of a few:
I did want to share with y’all how I am keeping all this organized – since I have only completely finished one step of the 5 released so far. I printed out the instructions for each part and keep a ziploc baggie containing the pieces completed for that step with it. I put a sticky note inside with notes on the number finished and how many needed. I don’t want to count the same things over and over!
I’m still binding and labeling a couple of quilts that will be Christmas presents so Orca Bay will continue to be on the back burner for a few more days. After the holidays I will be able to really get into the mystery mania.
Have a wonderful week before Christmas, y’all!
