Design Wall Monday - Orca Bay - 2/13/12

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

So I added some border geese to the wall -
Along with some white/neutral squares -

So -

Geese - Pointing in?

OR -

Geese - Pointing out?

I like - out

I sewed a couple of the geese -
And changed it up a bit -

The corner ones pointing out -
Seem to frame the black blocks -

The center ones pointing in -
Seem to draw my eye in to that center black block -

Now -


I see a GIANT 9-patch -

Do YOU see it?


What if I take the middle “patch” out of each side -

Do you see it now?

That’s how I’m going to sew it together -

In “chunks” - not rows -

This post is getting really long -

So check back later -

And I'll show you How I Do It -

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Oooo I really like the last layout!! Way to go on hanging in there. You'll have it finished in no time. ;o) I do marvel about how everyone 'sees' things different. I also sew "chunks" together instead of piece by piece rows...but my chunks were different than yours. And I always sew the completed border on last. We do make the world go round don't we. lol

  2. I'm torn between geese point out all around and half in-half out. Your sewing in chunks has me smiling - my January UFO instructions had things put together that way. I prefer rows (OCD anyone?), but if your way works for you, run with it! It's looking good!

  3. I love it when people do something different with a project than anyone else. A wall hanging of Orca Bay was genius!

  4. I'm going with geese pointing out but center ones pointing in. Looks great! I can't wait to see it next Monday.

  5. oh, looks nice. I like the geese going in an out. Can't wait to see what you decide.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
