Orphan Stars and Geese in a Night Sky

I'm feeling stressed.  Sewing is calming ... but it can't be anything too complex or for which creative decisions must be made.   So I sewed together the second round of orphan blocks on my design wall. 

Orphan Stars and Geese - Assembled

It currently measures 56 by 66 inches.  I will likely add a 2 inch border for a finished size of 60 x 70.  I may not finish in time for the H2H deadline, but either way, both of the orphan blocks quilts will find their way to the charity Happy Chemo. 

I'm joining the lists for Mrs Sew and Sow's Scraptastic Tuesday–be sure to check out the fantastic quilt she made, starting with some orphans–and WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced.

I like the way the color turns out on the dark backround. Very pretty.

I love the idea of putting all your orphan blocks together! The way you've worked them, I don't think one could even tell that it wasn't originally planned that way. The end result hopefully made the stress worthwhile.

This is coming along really well. Love the geese flying north and south. So much to look at.
Thanks for sharing it.

It looks even better than I imagined, and I thought it would look great! I hope the stress is greatly reduced shortly.

Very pretty. You did a great job getting all those blocks together. I know what you mean about sewing something simple when you are stressed.

Love what you've done with the orphans.

Stitching calms me, too - the hum of the machine, the feel of the fabrics . . . lovely quilt top, btw.
