Nearly Insane Quilt - Update #3 November

It's hard to believe you can be exhausted from sitting hand stitching all day, but last night as I made the last few stitches to get my Nearly Insane quilt blocks together all I could think about was going to bed.  The construction of this has taken longer than anticipated, but as you will see from the picture all the blocks, sashing and cornerstones are together.  If you look back a few posts you may also be able to play 'spot the difference', as several of the blocks have been changed partially or completely.

All the paper is still in and I imagine it will probably take me three months to remove all that!

When I started this project I now realise I partly imagined that once I had reached this stage it would be done, but todays project is to start get the borders together and there is still quite a journey to go.

  8. Congratulations on reaching this milestone, it looks stunning. You must be so keen to start taking out the tacking stitches and ripping out the papers (carefully)!

  14. Keep thinking about your quilt - it must be a mission to take out all the papers - I did a tiny piece yesterday and it took forever. Hope you are well.
