What Does the Whale Say????

When you have put together several rows of your Orca Bay, and the little four-inch squares don't go in the 'right' direction...
What does the Whale Say???
Why - Rippit, Rippit.... of course  !!!!
On more positive news - Monday I was off from work - and the LQS had no class scheduled - so it was MAKE A SANDWICH DAY !!!  and I talked dh into helping!!
Here's the mystery quilt i made on Christmas Eve as Pocket Full of Mysteries.  It's a Dorothy Young design - thanks, Dorothy, for the mystery - it was fun, and I love the quilt... can't wait to machine quilt this one...

 And - can anyone identity this design????  Yep, you got it - B onnie Hunter's Roll, Roll, Cotton Bowl...  I admit I was a little reluctant to sandwich this big bad, quilt... but a million safety pins later, it is almost sandwiched - I say almost because I had a little booboo - my backing turned out to be about three inches too narrow - but I have more ordered, and can just add on that little bit - no way I'm pulling out all those pins!!!!

I am so very glad to have both of these big quilts sandwiched -  and actually it was lots of fun...  especially with my volunteer helper...  what a good sport he is!!!

.... got to go to my sewing machine... it's calling...............

Hi Kate sorry to hear about the unpicking you have to do on Orca Bay. It's so easy to loose track putting this one together- I really have to concentrate.
Congratulations on getting RRCB basted and ready for quilting,
Mine is sitting in a cupboard waiting for me to do that!
