If you have read my blog for a long time, you will know that I pieced the full Nearly Insane quilt through 3,5 months through winter 2007/2008.
I have been talking and thinking about doing the follow up quilt Just Plain Nuts for a long time.
First I picked brown and taupe fabrics, and photo copied some blocks from the book, but came to a halt – next I picked blue and grey fabrics, and came to another halt – but after being in Bergen this weekend I came to the conclusion that I _Need_ more pink in my life – like candy floss, spring flowers and mother of pearl morning sky
It would be a lie to say that the colours in the original quilt by Liz Lois appeals to me, but the blocks and the quilt do.
The full quilt is 49 pieced blocks + 32 pieced setting blocks = 81 blocks.
Nearly Insane quilt is 98 blocks.
