Yesterday I put the final border on my Orca Bay Quilt. The border pieces were assembled and ready for me almost 12 months ago but I needed to complete some more of my blue string sashing strips first. Wouldn’t you know it, I miscalculated and now have quite a few left over as well. I’m loving this design, it really is an eye catching quilt. I did have to buy quite a lot of fabric for this quilt, especially as I was given some of the blue string blocks and wanted the same colour hues through the design. I’ve never owned a lot of blues!
