little Santas  from long ago

tiny sewing machines and spools of thread

little pinked nosed bunny

little blue dog

bicyclist with their dogs

a spider on her web

little red trees

recycled shirts and crib sheets
musical notes

Put them all together and what do you have?  A beautiful scrap quilt!  This is Bonnie Hunter's 2011 mystery quilt called "Orca Bay".   I'm so proud of finishing this mystery I'm gonna show it off over at" Finish it up Friday" with Crazy Mom Quilts :0).  Gotta put this one in the  Festival of Scrappiness too ;0)     
 Happy sewing, Kim
