Design Wall Monday

I decided to make my Orca Bay quilt into a wall hanging.  The longer it hung there, the more I fiddled with the color arrangements.  This is what I ended up with (with some very appreciated help from Joanne).  Anyway, this is what’s on my Design Wall.  Now I just have to figure out how to quilt it.  I’m actually thinking of making this a double-sided piece, just hanging it from rings along the top.  Or maybe I’ll frame it between two sheets of glass so I can turn it around occasionally.  I think it’ll go in our living room.  My poor DH.  I swore I wouldn’t fill our house with quilts hanging everywhere.  Who knew?

I love the color placement and the secondary design that comes out. Good luck with the quilting, that is always a hard decision.
