Orca Bay progress


I'm sure you quickly picked out what's missing from the photo above...blue string blocks. This top is sew close to being done but I needed to finish the purple project and then I needed some mindless work so I've been working on the floribunda quilt shown yesterday.

I don't want this to fall by the way side, altho it's listed for 2 months in this year's UFO challenge, so I have left the 3 baskets of parts out on the cutting table. It's annoying taking up that much space and I'm hoping that will be the kicker to gitterdone :)

About now I would be looking for some blue striped fabric. : )
You have an amazing amount finished, though. I love the richness of your reds.
I have some assembled blocks, but I didn't do strings, either. I can't believe all of the people who have them quilted and bound. I need focus!!!

YOU.CAN.DO.IT.!! LOL -- or, you can just put it in a bag and hide it in a closet and then forget about it and in the meantime use up the fabric you'd set aside for it (but didn't put in the bag with everything else) and ... oh wait. That's me. Yeah, you better find something that prompts you to 'gitterdone'!! :)

I Like working on multiple different projects at once, and when ONE project is taking up all the real estate, it makes me not want to sew anything. My Orca bay has been cleared off the table to bring back the mojo for now, and then I will get it out one step at a time.

You'll get it done and it'll be beautiful. It took me almost 2 years to finish Carolina Christmas, but I finally got it done.

It's a great pattern, well worth keeping going on it. A little at a time and you'll be done. What you have looks great!
