A VERY Insane & Jane Weekend

I carved out a few hours a day since Friday and decided I would finish all 10 Rainbow Jane blocks this weekend and add them to the panel. No wonder I need bifocals now.








































































I was also able to get caught up on my Nearly Insane blocks.





















I have an identical set since I am making two of these. When I am half way done I may just make one. LOL!

You are making a Rainbow Dear Jane, a regular Dear Jane and a Nearly Insane quilt ALL at the same time? Well, you get What a Woman award in my book!

OMG you were busy this weekend. And no, i don't think when you are 1/2 done with "our" nearly insane quilt, it would be a good idea to just make 1 quilt. how about 2 small quilts, much better idea. LOL.

love what you've done on your jane quilt.

WoW!! Amazing! I am always blown away by how much that you get done! Imagine, if you didn't have to work, you would have them finished! :)

You are a true inspiration!

Jean said...

You have been a busy lady....probably a dumb question, but what is a Nearly Insane quilt? I have seen you post pictures of these before, but thought they were part of the Dear Jane. Sorry...

Karene said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! How on earth did you do all that??? I'm dizzy just looking at them much less making them....LOL

Robin said...

Eye candy extreme! Those Rainbow Jane blocks are just so fun, and make me happy just looking at them. And <*gasp!*> Nearly Insane is amazing. This is the first time I've seen you group the blocks together like that, and I'm seriously blown away. Amazing work!

Joy said...

Sheesh! Did you get any sleep at all?

Your work is just awesome.

Lindsey said...

You are insane! So awesome! Did I see some reverse applique in there? and no I didn't see any blanket stitch.... by the way...wouldn't you know it, my machine doesn't have the blanket stitch...it's just my luck. Great job, I can't believe how much you've done...how long did that take to do? I think all of us want to know that!

Annelies said...

What a lot of blocks. Did you get any sleep ?

Pam said...

I was just going to type "Holy Smokes" and I see the first comment says "Holy Cow"

Pretty impressive!! I think the name of the quilt probably describes the weekend "Nearly Insane"

Congratulations on finishing so many blocks.

Liz said...

I was in awe when I scrolled down the first few blocks...and then a few more, and a few more, and then some. Wow, that is a LOT of blocks! You sure set the bar high for the rest of us.
