Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall


First up is the Orca Bay top. This was the 2011 Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt.  I have the batting, backing and thread to quilt it, I just need to scheduled long arm rental time.

So, having finished one quilt top, I’m on to the next one. Eye Fooler in black and brights.



Saturday I got a few 2-patches and flying geese made while I was avoiding the borders for Orca Bay. There are tons more of these units which need to be made. The bright fabric for these units are cut but I haven’t cut the black fabric. I made myself wait until the Orca Bay top was done.

These 4″ wide bright strips should be enough for the rest of the black and bright units.

By getting these cut, I’ve been able to fold up the rest of the fabric. Admittedly it’s not put away – but that’s only because there’s a quilt top hanging from the shelving.

I did cut one 5″ strip of the black to make the background of the triangle in a square units.

Next up is to figure out how many units of each fabric I need. I suspect I’ll be cutting all week.

Linking up to Patchwork Times.



3 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. Orca Bay looks great! I love your blacks and brights, though. Looking forward to seeing what you will do with those.

  2. Yea for your Orca Bay Flimsy Finish. Those Eye Fooler block are very cute. I see some fussy cutting in the Triangle in a square blocks. So striking with the Black background, too

  3. Congratulations on getting orca bay to a finished top. All easy downhill from there.
