Happy Friday Quilt Parade - Flamingo Bay

 Here is a finished daylight view of Flamingo Bay. 
 The quilting is a freehand swirl with some echo quilting. 
 It doesn't show up all that much on such a busy background, but it does add a nice texture to the finished quilt. 
The back was a huge length of pink from a clearance sale at Joann's stretched out with a bit of teal that I bought to redo Sydney's room before she decided on a zebra themed. 
I am now officially done with last years Bonnie Hunter mystery and free to start the new one in November.  I really should resist, but I don't know if I can.  I have been trying to get things finished off lately, but new projects keep adding themselves to my list.

It's a fabulous finish!
I love that shot from the back with the sun shining through!
I don't have the last two finished and will be starting the new one for sure! LOL

Great job & wonderful photo, especially with the sun shining through :*) I'm on the line about starting Bonnie's new mystery. I've just got too much started and need to get some of them off my plate first. I may have to just keep the clues and start it a little later than everyone else.

Woo Hoo. You know as I was looking at the calendar today at work and realized Monday is the beginning of October, I thought to myself.....oh no, I only have one month to get Orca Bay done, before the next one starts!!! Glad I am not the only one that thinks like that. :D As for skipping it, you know we can't....it is impossible for us to do that.
