Anyone Working on the Nearly Insane Quilt

by Liz Lois??

Today, I was going through some old boxes of fabric looking for something specific and I ran across the three blocks that I made several years ago from Liz Lois' Nearly Insane Quilt.

When I first learned to quilt about 7 years ago, I learned paper-piecing!!  My friend, Sue Baddley at Summit Creek Quilts loves to paper-piece and she was my first teacher.  This is the first block I ever pieced - Block #13 in the Nearly Insane Quilt:

For the next block I did - Block #34, and chose some brighter colors.  This was the beginning on my journey to the fun bright colors I so love even today.

So, then the third block - Block #40, continued with bright colors.

After seeing these fun blocks, I want to make more!!  Do I dare start a new project??  But wait, is this really a new project or just a very old UFO that is dying to be completed??  Hmmmmmmm!!

No 'insane' blocks, but lots of 'dear jane' that may at some point be enough.

Projects are like shoes. One can never have too many :) Great blocks.
