PHD in 2018: UFO # 13
My finish today is a little quilt (17″ x 22″) that I started when we were in Quebec. The first picture is a me & the setup at the campground outside Montreal. The 2nd picture is the little one a few days ago … I had tried quilting it on my featherweight … that had worked out OK, except that I didn’t have the right colour of thread – so I took most of the quilting out.
Here is a picture of the finished project, hanging on the clothesline under the overhang – since it is raining today!
Yes, I’m still working on piecing Orca Bay #2. When I was looking for the pictures of sewing in Quebec, I found this picture of Orca Bay #1.

Churn Dashes are such a classic! I can’t wait to see Orca Bay #2
Yes, indeed, they are a classic! I can’t wait either … but I will have to … there’s a zillion little pieces …. Happy Quilting! 🙂
what a sweet little mini! I really do like churn dashes. LOVE your Orca Bay. I’ve had the clues all these years, and never got around to piecing it yet.
Thanks Lynette! I too, like the churn dashes. My husband has ordered more – for table runner and end tables and … sheesh! As for Orca Bay – the red string blocks frame the white Ohio stars … the directions have them framing the black ones. A friend re-organized my blocks at a retreat and then I went with it. Will do it the same way with my newest Orca Bay. Happy Quilting! 🙂
That is a lovely little finish! The quilting looks great.
Great pictures of your quilts. Orca Bay must have thousands of pieces or it’s one of those fooled you whole cloth quilts. Why would you quilt outside?
Hi Karen, Orca Bay is one of Bonnie Hunter’s quilts from years ago … I posted here https://quiltinggail.wordpress.com/2018/02/26/temptation/ about my 2nd one – only a portion of it in small pieces. When we were Quebec, helping friends move, I spent a day at our camper to have some “me” time … the camper is tiny, I had my featherweight and a featherweight table I’d gotten from my aunt, … and to top it off, the weather was beautiful! I LOVE quilting outside! And, on occasion, I even do it at home! Happy Quilting! 🙂
Number 13!! You are on a roll, for sure. I had to giggle at quilting at a campsite in Montreal. That is dedication! That is a shame that you had to take out your first quilting stitches, but the second version looks lovely to me! On to #14 I’m sure. ~smile~ Roseanne
Well, Roseanne, I think I’m addicted to quilting! Yes, Quilt #14 is being slowly quilted and another is being pieced. I highly doubt you’ll see a finish any time soon! But each one gets done, one stitch at a time! Happy Quilting! 🙂
