Sneek Peek: Nearly Insane

Nearly Insane Block

A few years ago we had a Nearly Insane group at the shop that was working on the quilt by the same name by Liz Lois. We are hoping to re-visit this quilt and finally get it finished to display in the shop. If you do not know about Nearly Insane, it is similar to the “Dear Jane” quilt. There are a few basic blocks but many are very challenging, like the one pictured above( It is 6″ finished). The books instructions are purely paper piecing, but we used a few other methods to make many of ours. I know there are many of you out there still working on this! I started a Flickr group today for Nearly Insane ( I was really surprised that there was not one already!). I hope that some of you will share what you have made so far and be inspired to pick this up again. There are 96 blocks total. As if your life wasn’t insane enough!
