. . .to another huge project. Remember Orca Bay? This is what I did this morning:
When I made Orca Bay, I was hoping for a red and green quilt with a hint of gold. Since it was a mystery, I had to just guess and select where to put the colors. And I guessed wrong, because I have a gold and red quilt with a hint of green. Not complaining because I have a beautiful quilt. But when I saw the Bowood House fat quarter collection on sale, dreams of a red and green quilt resurfaced. It's a gorgeous bunch of prints, stripes, solids and checks, which will make a lovely "coordinated scrappy" quilt. Of course, I'm also making it waaaay bigger than Bonnie Hunter's original = 94" square.
And - I hesitate to admit it - no string blocks. I love ya, Bonnie, but I can't love the strings, and I don't love sewing the string blocks. So solid patches where they were in the plan. It will still be gorgeous.
