Orca Bay Part 3...Madeline's progress...age 13

 All 350 hst's are DONE! 

And...52 qst's (hourglass blocks) are finished. 

Not too bad....for this week's progress. 

It's a good thing there are still a few clues yet. Madeline is working very hard...and I know with confidence that she will have all the parts done when she needs them. 

She went with a dark gray pindot as her black and this aqua swirl as her neutral. Should look great with her scrappy purples (red) and scrappy neutrals blue).  

I think even she is amazing herself at the amount of tiny blocks she has made...Even though this will not be the biggest quilt she has ever made...it will contain the most pieces! 

Way to go Madeline...keep up the good work! 

Orca Bay Part 3...Kristina's progress

Well...I didn't get too many hst's done this week...but I did manage to finish 1/3 of them. I helped Madeline though on her mystery. She made a huge dent in her fabric. 
Do you think my pinks (neutrals) are too varied in color? I sure hope not. 

I also was battling the flu...but I feel much better now...so I plan to cut more triangles...and start sewing. Isn't it something how when your body aches all over...even sewing doesn't help?

I leave you with this...
Here is picture of our local movie theatre...

A sign of the times...perhaps??
I never thought I would see the day when this would close down!
