Design Wall Monday - Week 47

I'm combining link parties with this one.
First up, the design wall - Christmas Stars Wall Hanging.
I mentioned I was sewing the side 2.5" squares as leaders/enders. Except I never actually counted how many I'd need. My plan was two rows, to line up with the skaters on the top and bottom. Um, obviously I went past that. Luckily my Advent calendar will be the same fabrics, so I guess it's going to be getting a 2.5" squares border, too.
Second, Orca Bay. Which has already been renamed Skorca. Which is my favorite Penguins of Madagascar episode of all time. What? You don't have a favorite episode? You must not live with a six year old boy.
Bonnie said red is the most prominent, then black, then blue. My scrap bins said blue (the sky) is the most prominent, then black (the orca), a touch of red? 
{Skorca! Aaah! Who can be safe from the terror that swims the skies?}
3.25" squares are slowly becoming HSTs, which will be turned into the required QSTs. Skipper will be guarding the project.
