This is the unit that is slowing my progress on Orca Bay. I have sewn everything else possible, well almost, for this quilt trying to avoid this step. My "wings" don't fit against my string block correctly. My string units seem too large. Many of the components were donated to me premade so I am not sure what the issue is. I am a "close enough" sewer so I am just mushing them together the best I can.
I just finished trimming the last of the string blocks so I plan to start sewing wings onto them. I have 70 more to go and know that I end up ripping some here and there as I don't always get my point quite right. I'd LOVE to finish these so that I can play with the layout this weekend. We will see. Do you see this is just a very fancy "flying geese" unit? Bonnie called them crabs. See the white eyes?
