It's Finished!!!!!


Here is the photo of my finished Nearly Insane top. Thanks to the girls at Quiltmakers for holding the quilt while I photographed it. I should tell you that I've started Nearly Insane 3 times, but from what I hear from others that is pretty normal. The 3 or 4 blocks from my first attempt were made into needle books by a friend doing projects to sell to raise money for a worthy cause. OK. Yes, I did buy back one of the needle books made from one of those blocks. I got a bit farther on my second attempt and have almost 8 of those blocks. I'm going to make those into a small quilt. Then I saw Hanne's red and white blocks and decided I really liked the two color quilt. The quilt is made up of 98 blocks some of which are half blocks that go along the edges. Each block is 6 inches finished. The total quilt measures 96 1/2" inches.
