Orca Bay Variation

I am known to go rogue with my quilting plans.  I had every intention to make the Orca Bay quilt, just like it was presented, but alas, I had to go my own way.  No disrespect to Bonnie, who designs the most awesome quilts.  Sometimes those mysteries prove my fabric choosing skills useless.  Though I loved my pieces individually (see them all here), I didn’t love them together.

I have all the pieces from all the steps made, and think I will end up with {at least} 2 different quilts.  Here is the first top. the tan batik squares and the outer blue batik border are new off the bolt, but the rest is all from the scrap bin, yay me!

I am going to have to let the remaining pieces talk to me for a while before a plan hatches for them.  That’s ok, I have a dozen other projects to work on in the meantime.

Linking up with Sarah & Crazy Mom Quilts this week!  Go see what everyone else worked on this week & share some love!

Hands 2 Help-Charity Quilt Drive

Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is kicking off her 2nd annual Hands2Help Quilting challenge.

This is a great way to use up some scraps, send a little love along to someone who could desperately use it, and even win a little fabric love from some great sponsors!

We are joining in, with a free pattern & discount code to www.fabricsnquilts.com  to all that sign up, plus are giving away 2 quilt kits to the participants-more on that later!

 

But even before you make your quilt, you have the chance to win some prizes just for signing up!  Sue is donating 2 prizes to go to a couple lucky ducks who sign up to participate.

 

Please check out this worthy challenge.   You have the rest of this week to think about it, then go back to Sarah’s site on Sunday & sign up!  The quilts are not huge, the patterns can be as simple as you want & you are only making the flimsey (top-but of course are welcome to send completed quilts too)! CORRECTION: THIS CHALLENGE IS FOR COMPLETED QUILTS, NOT JUST TOPS, UNLESS YOU ARE OUTSIDE THE USA.  There will also be a linky party for online free patterns, starting the week of the 25th.

Signups will be next Sunday March 18th through Saturday, March 24th.

Today in our class, we made Valerie’s Purse.  One student used the Tend the Earth fabric & panel.
