I came to the decision that I just don't have the patience or skill to do a lot of the Nearly Insane blocks. Some of them are just not fun. I have a hate, hate, detest relationship with inset seams. I would rather go to the gym and run on the treadmill for an hour than do an inset seam. LOL! The blocks below are replacements for block #31. I made the one on the right first, which looks closer to the original. I tried to replicate it but after many hours all attempts were thrown in the trash. Instead I came up with the one on the left. I took it from the Dear Jane software and made it in 30 minutes. Ahhhh, fun again. This will be the first of many replacement blocks I will make. The block below is a real Nearly Insane block. FUN!
The blocks below are for my "Applique Affair" quilt in flannels and wool. I finished prepping all the blocks and now I just have to sit and sew.
