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 -

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

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!

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

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

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