Orca Bay and Dryer Lint

Well - that title caught your eye, didn't it????

Here are my units so far for Clues 1 and 2 of Orca Bay.  I think they play nicely together... don't you??

 They don't go very nicely with my dining room rug, but that's no matter...

DH brought this in to me last night - over the Thanksgiving holiday, I prewashed a lot of fabric I bought recently - mostly big pieces I got on great sales, that will be used for backs for charity quilts... 
So this is what my dryer lint looked like...  now tell me, does anyone besides a quilter have such lovely dryer lint?  Look at the value contrast and the complimentary colors!!!!  too funny.


I am looking forward to sharing a new photo of the Great Hexagon Quilt...  I have fallen newly in love with it with the completion of a new section - can't wait to show you - will take the monthly archive photo on the first of the month... come back to see!

Happy quilting,

Kate

I think we are doing the same colours for the Orca Bay Mystery quilt. What is your other colour? Mine is double pink/raspberry.

Love the lint! Aren't there art quilters out there who would find a way to include that in their fiber art project?

Oh those colors may not go with your carpet but they sure do look good together!! Can't wait to see your next step.

Beautiful blocks and yes they do play well together and lovely dryer lint.

I can't say that my dryer lint ever arranged itself so attractively. Your blocks look great!
