Orca Bay - Overwhelmed

This is my sewing area on Friday night. Orca Bay has taken over...i can't believe how many little pieces have to get sewn together to make the final quilt. I had step 1 completed on time and step 2 was done a few days late and then I didn't like one of the color combinations. I finally like these colors together and am buckling down to get it done.

Here is a test lay out to make sure I really like the colors.

Amazing. Now to sew 224 more flying geese blocks. Then find some more neutral. There is a small border before an amazing border with 96 more flying geese blocks. I hope to have it all pieced by late this evening. Wish me luck!
