Insanity!!!!

The block above measures 6" finished and has 109 pieces. INSANITY!!!
The block below measures 6" finished and has 40 pieces.
Below are more wool blocks from my "Applique Affair" quilt. All 20 border blocks are done and 11 center blocks.


My Daisy has recovered from her back pain. Now it is my Mindy that needs surgery. UGH! She has a tumor the size of a golf ball under her front arm that needs to come out after Christmas.

I hope everyone has a happy, healthy week.

6" blocks comprised of 109 tiny fabric pieces are INSANE! What were you thinking!!?! :faint: The wool applique blocks look bigger than 6". Are they? Can't wait to see the finished quilts. So sorry about Mindy needing surgery. Trusting that all will go well. :hugs:

Oh nooooooooo! I can't believe poor Mindy needs surgery... I hope its an easily removed tumor and that her recovery is fast and pain free.

Love the 109 piece block. That is A-MAZING!

Wishing you a happy, healthy week too!!

Oh, no! Poor Mindy. :( I hope the surgery goes well for her.

And, OMG woman, 109???? That is truly insane. And the blocks turned out beautifully. I doubt I would have made it with all my mental faculties intact. :P

Your blocks look wonderful.

I've been looking at doing some of the blocks with lots of pieces over the holidays. Just so we don't end up with all of them all at the end.

I'm sorry to hear Mindy needs surgery. I hope everything goes well.
