Done And Done!

Orca Bay is done and done!  I finished the binding yesterday, but it was too rainy and cloudy to get a good picture.  And it took a while for the sun to come out today.  But it did and I got a picture.  One of the whole quilt and one sort of a close up.  Feeling at loose ends now that this is done.  It won't be long before I'm engrossed in another big project.

Look how sad the grass is, even with the rain we just had.  Very dry summer.

Close up of the quilting.  A simple design.
Hope you had a great weekend!  On to other projects!!

I hope you have been enjoying your summer.  Mine is about to end and my "to do" list doesn't.  I always have hopes of getting more done than is possible in the time frame given.  I did finish another little table hot pad.  Grapes were the theme of this one.

Yesterday I went to "A Quilting Place" and quilted my Orca Bay Mystery quilt.  All I have left is the binding. At least this one is off the list.

Jackie, the owner of "A Quilting Place", is so helpful and I love working with her.  I did go with a simple design, but good coverage as there are so many little pieces.  Did get some little puckers on the front at the places where lots of little seams gathered together.  I'm hoping once I wash the quilt, it won't be as noticeable.  All in all, love the quilt and all that I have learned in making it.
