Orca Bay - 2/3/12

I was playing in EQ7 -

And came up with these -

Around Christmas time -
I thought that I had “solved” the “Mystery” -
7x7 -
Red Geese framing the white/neutral blocks -

Add a border -
9x9 -
Add two layers of Bonnie’s border blocks -
And twist them a bit -

Re-size back down to 7x7 -
I like how the “Black Wings” point toward the center of the quilt -

Add ‘Red Wings” in the border -
And it gets a bit too “busy” -

Leave the “Red Wings” -
But change the “Black Wings” to ‘White Wings” -

Re-size it up to 9x9 -
I like it - but it’s too big for me -

So it’s back to -

Not quite so “busy” -
The “White Wings” seem to give my eyes a place to rest -

Just need to make about 40 “White Wing” blocks -

And figure out what to do with the extra blocks I already made - ;))

Or maybe go back to -

012512 -
And make some “Black Wings” instead -

Decisions - decisions - ;))

Either way -

I have to finish up the center section first -

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I like the last one best: 012512 (it's in the middle there somewhere too). But that's just me. :) Any of them would be wonderful.

  2. Wow! So Ok you've really confused me now. I have no idea which one I like the best. One thing I realized when I was working with mine is that the pictures helped me 'see' it a different way than when I was standing there looking at it on my wall. Good luck. I can't wait to see how you finish it up.


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
