NPOP Starting Down The Final Stretch

I am pretty sure it's the seasonal stuff, but I don't feel well. Sore throat, body aches, and a low-grade fever. Yuck. Oddly enough, my daughter that is acting as live-in help for another family has the exact same symptoms. She texted me this AM to let me know she wasn't feeling well. I took her over some cough drops, tissues, cold medicine, and chicken soup. Maybe I got it from her??

I had to wait for two loads of laundry to process, so even though I didn't want to do anything but sleep, I started putting the rows of my Nine-Patch One-Patch together. (for those of you who are new to my blog, you can click on anything underlined in a different color, and it will take you to all the past posts or links on that subject). I decided on a light-ish purple Thimbleberries for the setting triangles and one of the borders and the binding. Refer to the original picture to see the pattern. I chose purple because the room where this will be used is painted purple. I picked out the color myself :)

Here is a picture with one row missing...I happened to have that one in the sewing machine when the picture was taken. This looks like an optical illusion. I had to put some of the blocks slightly on top of their neighbors to make room for all the blocks on my design wall.

Here's a close-up of the purple. I think I'm gonna like it!!

Here's how much I have finished. I didn't do any more because I. am. finished. I need to go sleep, or at least recline in bed.

Just counting the 9-patch blocks with the colors in the corners and center, this is 8 blocks x 10 blocks, on point naturally.
Good night!
