Remember Orca Bay?

Remember the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter from last fall?  This is what I have on my design wall today.  I have been sewing some of the star blocks together this past weekend in hopes of getting the quilt top together soon. 

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed lately by the number of pieces of fabric in my sewing room. I don't mean pieces of fabric like fat quarters but pieces of fabrics that are cut into different width strips and others that could/should be sewn into quilt tops.  It seems the strips that I have cut are never the right size, and if they are then they are the wrong color.  I also have several bags of blocks that just need to be sewn into tops.  Does this happen to any of you?
This Orca Bay quilt has lots of pieces so I think it will seem like less in my sewing room if it is all sewn together in one piece.  I really love all the string blocks in this quilt.

My camera is one of my favorite quilting tools.  I didn't notice the mistake in the one star block until I started looking at the photos to put in this blog post. 
Thanks to Judy L. at Patchwork Times for hosting Design Wall Monday.

 I hope you are finding some time to stitch today! 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
