I made a few zigs and a few zags, then laid them out with the light floral next to the Great HST Caper quilt top. I love it.
At this point I can't imagine liking flying geese better, so I'm just going to proceed making my little scrappy zig zag border treatment. I had enough squares cut with lines drawn on the back to sew the pieced border bricks for one long side. I spent the rest of the afternoon cutting squares and drawing my sewing lines for the next three strips.
And the bonus half square triangles I nearly had a melt-down over yesterday...
They are going to trim out at 1.5" square and finish at 1". I decided to just make them and figure out what to use them for some other day.
As for Orca Bay, now that I have the black tonal fabric to use in the first step, there's no reason why I can't get started on making the 2.5" hourglass blocks this week, along with ironing and folding my new stash fabrics.
