I do have to share with you a picture of the 4 corner triangles I finished yesterday. 

Corner triangles.

I took the picture outside since it was so sunny. (Cold, but sunny.)  You can really see the colors in the true light of the sun.  I'm really loving this quilt.(Have I said that before?)  And it has gone together so fast!  It took me until August to finish Orca Bay.  I'm not complaining as this quilt really put us on Easy Street!
