Orca Bay Mystery quilt part #1

A little diversion from my art quilts. I've joined Bonnie Hunter's group to complete the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt.
I dug out all my blacks and neutrals and started making half square triangles, and put these together to form 228 Hour Glass blocks...lot's of piecing, but that is fine with me. At this time I need something to take my mind off life.
I have my blues and reds picked and look forward to the next step.
This is the first mystery I've done with Bonnie, and I'm very excited about it all.
Here are my hour glass blocks.

Your blocks look amazing, I love the various prints. Bonnie's mysteries are habit forming, each year I look forward to them and hope she does another one.

Your blocks are smashing! Will look for your string blocks next. This is my first Bonnie mystery and I have to say i'm enjoying it.
