Lately its been all nine patches all the time as I work to getting all of the blocks together for my Nantucket border. I guess it was inevitable - that feeling like my shoulder blades were being fused together - because I seem to be spending every spare minute glued to my sewing machine.
To break things up a bit I sewed the remaining four star blocks, so I can scratch all of the stars off of my list.
After a while I think I might have been getting delirious - it almost seemed that the fabric was trying to send me messages...
When I really needed a break I went upstairs and baked a German Apple Cake. I wanted something with either apples or pumpkin and this one looked appealing so I gave it a shot. It's wonderful. With so much apple in it the taste and consistency is even better a day or two on - nice and moist - and its been ages since I've made anything with a cream cheese icing, so this really hit the mark.
Maybe it was the sugar hit that I needed to get me to the finish line, I don't know, but get me there it did. All nine patches are done! Look at all those pretty pink highlights. Love it. I think that there might even be four extra.
Funny, it looks like more on the chart than in the piles. Now to make them into a border....M
