ORCA Bay is no longer a UFO in outer space or on my shelf

Last night I finished the binding on the Bonnie Hunter ORCA Bay from a year ago
 It was in my UFO pile for so long because I didn't like that I had substituted the colors from the original. I LOVE the original colors.
Now that it's done, it's nice, it's a LOOK for sure, not the stark contrast like the original but still fun.

I quilted just an allover meandering so it went pretty quickly.

This is the backing, actually for ONCE a solid piece of fabric- well pieced together but all the same fabric!

Congratulations on your finish. It's lovely. I did Bonnie's Carolina Crossroads and got down to the borders. My side points were off and I never went any further.....grin.
