Two Bonnie Hunter tops for charity

Orca Bay - but in green, brown, blue, and neutral

Christmas Lights - with the easy-to-spot turned block
I like scrappy quilts, as they help me use up the scraps that seem to multiply constantly. I did the Orca Bay mystery, but since I had so many greens and browns, I used those colors instead of red and black that Bonnie used.    Christmas Lights was a mystery in three consecutive issues of Quiltmaker magazine.

Our guild has a thriving community service component, and I was able to donate both of these tops. Susan will get them quilted and bound, and they'll find happy homes.

Bonnie is showing numerous versions of Orca Bay on her website

I love the blue and brown. Wow great for donations. I bet you could have raffled these off and made lots of money for your charity. Both are just wonderful quilts. Very generous of you.

I agree with Sue's comment. These are so lovely, I bet you could have raised a lot though a raffle. But I imagine whoever gets them will be extremely happy as well!

Both quilts are lovely, I love your colors in your Orca Bay. You are very generous, I'm sure someone will love them.

Wow, Cyndi, I think you are the only quilter who has posted that they are donating their Orca Bay! Very good of you. I love your earthy colors.
BTW, if that turned block is so easy to spot, why did it take me so long to find it? : )

That Orca bay is my favorite. You sure can quilt! Whoever will get that, she or he is one lucky person.
