A Friday Finish!

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.

  1. 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! 🙂


    • 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! 🙂


  2. Hi Gail,
    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! 🙂
