Also, I have just spent a bit of time tidying up my Inbox, and I was taken back by all the kind and supportive comments that many of you have made about my Nearly Insane quilt blocks since I started my journey over a year ago. From this end the creative juices don't always flow when I am writing about 'another' red and white, English paper pieced, hand sewn quilt block. Thanks for sticking with me - we are heading for the home straight!

What a gorgeous quilt this will be. I agree sometimes it is hard to blog about the next block in a quilt that takes a bit of time to do. I love red and white quilts and never tire of seeing one in progress.ReplyDelete
This is an amazing quilt ( I have seen others and just marvel at anyone that can make such a thing...just as I marvel at seeing your blocks :)ReplyDelete
This is beautiful, I've never seen the Nearly Insane quilt but I'll look it up now.ReplyDelete
I love your colour scheme.
I just design on paper with colored pencils or pencil and sketch different shapes to represent patterns of fabrics I will use... have yet to try a computer based design program... glad you like yours and your quilt block there rocks! Very nice way to audition for hand stitching too :) KathiReplyDelete
I just continue to love this quilt you are making - I love how you share the processReplyDelete
Oh my goodness...such tiny pieces to make into a puzzle! ENjoy your hand stitching!ReplyDelete
Looks lovely, looking forward to seeing this quilt coming togetherReplyDelete
what a cute block - I am off now to discover what the Nearly Insane quilt is!!ReplyDelete
You mentioned auditioning fabrics in EQ. Did you scan in the fabrics (I have yet to figure out how to do that), you were able to load the fabric lines from the vendors or are you using similar fabrics? I think this might improve some of my class info if I could make the handouts with the same fabrics in the actual quilt. TIA!ReplyDelete
BTW - upgrade to EQ7! While it's the only version I have ever used, it's 2 levels above where you are now and I think after the Insane project you have earned it!
