Orca Bay Mystery

It is November and it is Bonnie Hunter Mystery Time. About this time each year, when Bonnie is done with her travelling classes she offers a free mystery pattern on her blog for everyone to follow.

I am still waiting for my rulers to arrive (an early Christmas present from hubby)... so I haven't started cutting yet... which means I'm still thinking and re-thinking my fabrics... especially since Bonnie's extra post about which colors are most promnient

Red is her prominent color... not my favorite... so my prominent color will be purple!
black is her second color... mine will be that blue/purple
blue is her accent color... mine will be that pink/orange floral
whites are her neutral.... you guessed it... my neutral will be that yellow print

And of course, I don't have enough of any of these to make her size quilt, so I will be making only half the number of blocks she requires...

But, since I'm still waiting on the rulers to arrive, I keep pulling in different fabrics and changing my mind...

those rulers better arrive soon!


  1. Hope those rulers do arrive soon or you might end up making multiple quilts. LOL
    Enjoy the mystery

  2. I agree - hopefully those rulers are on their priority shipping!

  3. Your colors are gorgeous, hope your rulers have arrived.

  4. You've chosen a very unique colour scheme - will be fun to see it come together. Hope you get a chance to start soon :)
