Orca Bay Part 2 Pretty in Pink

Sewed a little yesterday. Love the way the pink strings are coming out. Looks like candy! They sew up very fast. Have 40 done. Will probably get them all done today! I am using painters paper as foundation. Very thin and cheap. It looks like brown wrap and is 15 " x 180 ft for 4 bucks. I had bought it to do Roll Roll Cotton Boll. Still have not started that one. 

I made all my blocks with the center string the same. I figured if there is a specific direction in placement, this will create a secondary design element. Not sure I like the one piece that is brown and pink. My daughter does. It has attitude! I guess a little attitude never hurt anyone. LOL!

  3. Don't worry about that one piece. When you think about how many pieces will be in the whole quilt, you will have difficulty finding it. It adds interest.

  4. I'd leave it in also, it gives variety. Good idea to use the same center string
