Another Nearly Insane Row

Last night I added another row to my Nearly Insane quilt. You can see that three of the corner blocks are in place, so I'm more than half way with the top now. (As long as you don't include the inner and outer border!)

Here is the full view of where I'm at ... hard to get a good shot of this ... the quilt is going to be a big girl!

And here's one a little closer, you can see some of the blocks a little better :-)

I was so excited to get this row in place last night that I made so many rookie errors while doing the stitching. I really think I did more 'unsewing' than sewing. Seriously! And I was so into it that I lost track of time - I was jolted into reality when Marty came into the sewing room at 1.15am and asked if I would be thinking about sleeping anytime soon ... Ooops!

Just discovered your blog and have read back to April 2010. I'd like to receive your blog updates via e-mail. Can you make that happen? I know when I've asked other bloggers in the past they would do something with Feed Burner. Does that make sense to you? Thanks! Love your blog and love seeing all of your NI blocks. Awesome!! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Tazzie,
I am a little farther along on my NI but my work is not as awesome as yours. Today I add a row. Hurrah! I think I have 25 more blocks to go. You don't need to respond to me.

Absolutely Amazing!

Stunning! I think you are very smart to be assembling this as you go--such instant gratification rather than just a pile of blocks to look at! Time means nothing to me either when I sew or dream about quilts while pottering in my sewing area...
