Orca Bay

My Orca Bay has spoken - and she has taken over the design wall.... stubborn little whale is she...


I am getting closer.... our weekend was a little crazy and by Sunday Night - I was plumb worn out... so not much more got done. The couch beckoned and we obeyed!

We were doing another friends chores, and they have chickens. SO! I got their eggs ( the chicken eggs)  - I think I might miss that.......  We also stacked 2 cords of firewood and got the last 200 bales of hay stacked.... I am ready for lazy!


I did get another Block Drive Quilt quilted ... here is a close up

And the full quilt !
I had a goal this year to quilt 12 Quilts of Valor
and with this one ( and the one below)



The Back
 I made it to #28!!!!  

This one was pieced by Diana B.



I didn't want to brag - but I wanted to brag... you know.... some people tell me they can only quilt one Quilt of Valor - and I always tell them - THAT!!! is one more Veteran knowing he or she is appreciated !

Often - I am that quilter that says - well I can only do one.... but it added up this year ( YAY!!)

Enjoy your Monday!

I love both of the QOVs! I have another that I never sent to you because I'm going to present it to my neighbor this week. He's having surgery soon and I thought he might need a quilt.

Selfish is she... you've gotta give her some room.
Love the numbers! These last two are gorgeous - like the other ones.
