Bonnie K. Hunter's Orca Bay Mystery Quilt ran from Thanksgiving 2011 through January 1, 2012.  This is my finished quilt top.  Once again, Bonnie walked a group of quilters of various skills through a complex pattern by breaking it into managable steps.  For me, the twist came at the end with those black/white border pieces...I never would have guessed that was what those were for.  I was trying to put them around the Ohio Star units and thinking that the red string blocks would be around the border somehow.  The biggest challenge I had putting the top itself together was those blue string blocks....if they weren't placed properly, the flow of the pattern just died in place.  There are some of those that got removed and replaced at least 3 times, some 4.  I blame it on quilt dyslexia. :)

MNnancy, this was my second Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt.  Yes, I'd do her quilts anytime.  I love scrappy quilts, I love using my stash (If I use it up, I can get new fabrics), and Bonnie's quilts are worth every stitch.  And, she didn't pay me for that endorsement or nothin. :)  LOL
