Orca Bay Step One Done
I got them done last night. I completed the 224 hour glass triangles required. I did a few extras as I had trouble counting anything. I think the little piles have 10 in each but then they got mixed up at one time. Bonnie Hunter is doing a Link Page so check it out if you have not come here from that link already.
I used the "start with a square" technique and sew down the 1/4" from the middle line then cut and iron. Then butt the seams together and sew a 1/4" down the middle again a cut and iron. I hate fabric dog ears so I cut them off. Love real dog ears, soft and brown and floppy. he he.
I have used mostly black and white fabric but I let little bits of colour in the black or in the white. I have some great mini dots that I just love. Should be a great quilt. I can not wait till Friday again.

Beautiful Cathy - love your fabric choices.ReplyDelete
Have started mine...got 8 of 224 done. Just needed to assure my cutting and sewing accuracy. Will share pictures soon.ReplyDelete
Looks like you and I have similar sources for our B&W fabrics, Cathy. :-) I'm up to 150 hour glass units...Only 74 to go!ReplyDelete
I like the extra bits of color in your white - they really add some sparkle!ReplyDelete
Looks great, what a great start. My fabrics are in the washer right now so hopefully I will get started tomorrow after work.ReplyDelete
You've done a great job on the mystery units. I used the same method, but started with 3.5", so I still have to trim them down. I'm with you on the dog ears ... fabric not good, furry good :)ReplyDelete
Very pretty little hour glasses. Love the black and white with a touch of red.ReplyDelete
You have made great progress!ReplyDelete
Great little blocks. You are off to a great start.ReplyDelete
