Yes, Gentle Readers, the top of my Orca Bay Mystery Quilt is finished!
|Full out on my kitchen floor!|

I confess I have no idea when I'm going to sandwich and quilt it, but it won't be soon. :-) I need to take a break from this project, figure out what I have on hand for backing, and check my batting supply. I think, as Bonnie did, the quilting will be an overall pattern -- likely in a neutral thread (I'm thinking white or pale grey) that will blend in and not detract from the piecing which, if I may so myself, has completely floored me with its success. Will I do another top with as many pieces any time soon? Not on your life! However, I have become a rabid scrappy quilter, so there will be more tops churned out. As for the leftover 'crumbs' -- I'll be converting those into art pieces with fusing and tulle for free-motion quilting practice...
