And Four More Blocks Makes Twelve

Four more blocks for Vintage Red so that makes 12 in all. I still think it's gonna be an interesting quilt, but for some reason I'm not in a huge rush to finish.

I have a lot of applique idea stacking up in my head though {and to be honest, on my counter top} so that may hurry me up. Can't have too many open ended applique projects or the pressure gets very intense.*wink
The first chocolate cake baked in my new oven
Guess I'll just need to eat some more chocolate cake. I got a crazy idea to make one last night after ten o'clock. It's a long story and I won't bore you with the details, but the thing is, there was spillover from pans being too full. Uh huh. Eventually I started smelling something burning and my daughter wandered into the kitchen and said, 'mom?' There was chocolate cake dripping all over the bottom of my oven. Can you believe it? The skies finally clear up, the wildfires get mostly under control and bingo, I go and set cake batter on fire in my very own house.....

  5. So accustomed to the smell of smoke that you miss it when it's gone?
    (Chocolate cake with nuts on top definitely makes the world a better place.)
    I love your applique projects. Always happy to see more!

  9. This will be a cheerful quilt. Love the red! I'm working on a pie today, myself. We'll see how it turns out. Thanks for the reminder to put a tray under it.

  10. LOL. Well, it looks good! I'm impressed that you stopped to take a photo before cutting into it. :)

    And the blocks also look great. I'm very interested to see the plan for these -- I love the colours and the pieced backgrounds.

  11. Such a funny & fun flower!
    I would selfishly say -- Less Baking, More Appliqué!
    (I'm eager to see them all together. Ignore me & keep your family fed.)

  14. At least you didn't burn the actual cake! I wonder exactly how many applique projects you have 'piling up'. I tend to work on one or two things at a time but maybe starting things is a good idea - stops ideas from disappearing out of your head. I love the flower blocks.
