Nearly Insane progress

Here I am finally! I've been so busy with working and life that my blog has taken a little of a back seat, but I promise I haven't been neglecting my stitching entirely.

Just last night I attached another row to my Nearly Insane quilt, this is the row that contains the block with 229 pieces. The next row has some tricky Lone Star type action, so I'm a little nervous - wish me luck people!

I've made 69 of the 98 blocks required for the quilt, so I'm definitely on the home stretch. I'd like to complete at least two a week for the next little while so I can get busy on the hand quilting soon. Let's see how far I get. Chatter soon! xox

Love it! 2 blocks a week sounds like a good goal to reach for. I like how you're putting each row together as you finish those blocks. Looking forward to seeing the next completed row :-)

It is beautiful You would never guess from looking at the colors of the individual blocks that they would all look so good together. It is going to be an amazing quilt.

It's looking great! I've yet to start mine, so yours is an inspiration. I especially like your sashing fabric choice. It really lets your blocks shine!

Wow again! With your skill, luck is not the word... you only need a bit of time... This is looking like an embossed jewel box lid!

Wow, you said 229 pieces?? That is amazing. What a treasure you'll have when it's done.

Mama Koch said...

Oh WOW! It's going to be spectacular!

Sue said...

Fantastic!! Looks so good - love the sashing. Has the fabric arrived yet? I think Santa must be weighed down. The posting is so slow.
Cheers
Sue
p.s. do you hand trace all the patterns onto freezer paper? I'm trying to find an easy way to do that. Scanning seems to distort the size.

This is gorgeous! And a great idea to put the quilt together as you go along instead of waiting until the end.
