Christmas Town Sampler

I have been following the Blog Hop/Mystery being presented by Denise Russart, Judy Laquidara, Sheryl Till and Susan Neves.  I was able to put the quilt top together this week while in Gulf Shores, AL.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.  Thank you ladies for your generosity.  You designed a lovely quilt.

Catching Up, Orca Bay and Easy Street

It's been awhile since I've posted (in case you haven't noticed).  At the end of the retreat, I had some major back issues which are just now improving.  In fact, I'm on yet another retreat.  Who goes to the beach and stays in the room sewing?!?!?

So far I finished the Orca Bay that I had worked on dilligently at the last retreat.  (See picture below)  I have the pieced border assembled but it didn't quite fit on the quilt so it's going to be back to the drawing board when I get home to figure out what to do to make it fit.

I'm following along with Bonnie Hunter on her latest Mystery Quilt, East Street.  It's not too late to follow along.  Get the clues here.  She's also doing a linky where we can chart our progress along with all the others who are making the quilt.  It's fun to see the different colorways chosen and to see if anyone else is using the same fabrics as you.

4 Patches and Flying Geese
I love Bonnie's Mystery quilts.  This is my third year to follow along.  Here is my Orca Bay sans the borders.  I'll repost when I finally solve the border issues.
