Cherry Blossoms

The pieced borders are on Cherry Blossoms!  I went with a dark purple inner border.  Not sure if I will repeat it as an outer border or let it end with the nine patches.  That will be a decision for another day though.  This was Bonnie Hunter's Crabapple pattern from her first Leaders and Enders book.  I started it in the summer of 2012 as a way to put lots of random nine patches to good use.  I'm working through lots of old projects right now trying to tidy things up a bit.
The marking period ended on Friday and I need to make sure all my grades are done.  I was glad to be able to finish this up first though.  Most of the day was busy with sleepovers and lacrosse, I was sure that this one was going to be put away again.  Life keeps getting in the way of sewing time!

Oh, that came out looking great! Love the purple in it. Wouldn't it be great to have a pause button for life... so we can sneak away and sew?

I love this one, Angela. It's beautiful! I've been looking at that pattern. Definitely on my bucket list now.

I really love how this one came out! Purple was a great choice for the sashing and inner border. Score one for finishing!

Looks GREAT!! I think that I would leave it as is and finish it off with a purple or green binding... unless you'd like for it to be bigger.

It's a great pattern, new to me. The purple sashing with the green triangles and a nice grounding to the tiny bits. They look very small to me. A very satisfying finish indeed.

Really nice. Don't think it needs another border.

A wonderful finish Angela!!! Life has been getting in the way of my sewing time too - I'm hoping to have a nice long winter's break now. Maybe I can get caught up on my RSC projects :*)

Cherry Blossoms looks great! Hope you get all your grading done and everything posted. I know from the homework that DT brings home, I sure wouldn't want to have to do all that grading. Especially the essays!
