Orca Bay Quilt Complete

The Opportunity Quilt for my guild is now complete.  I finished the binding on the Ocra Bay quilt the other day, but was waiting for some good weather to take photos.  That day was today.  The day started out cloudy, but by the afternoon the skies were blue.

I took my boys to the park with me and had them help me hold it up.

For the back I used the wide backing fabric from Connecting Threads.
It sure was nice not having to piece the backing.

Since the quilt is so busy, I decided to quilt it with an all over design.

 I'll turn the quilt over at the November meeting and we will start selling tickets for the drawing in March.  We'll pull a winner at the end of the Civil War Re-enactment which is usually held the first weekend in March.

I really love this quilt. So much so that I may have to make one for myself. 



  1. This is one stunning quilt! You are so generous to donate it to a fundraiser. I'm sure ticket sales will be brisk. Love the quilting pattern you chose and the park setting is perfect. Congrats on your finish!

  2. I agree with Lesley. You are totally generous. This quilt is just lovely.

  3. How beautiful and that is the perfect setting for this quilt! You are so generous to donate this!
