Another Finish & Stuff

I put the last stitch on the binding on my Nearly Insane(ish) quilt. I received it back from Margaret about a month ago but haven't had the time to get this done. I am really happy with the way she quilted it and I can't wait until I wash it and put it on my bed for the summer. As usual, my pictures are not the greatest. I didn't have anyone to help me hold it up to show the whole quilt. Here are a few close-ups.I tried to get the detail of the quilting that she did on the sashing and corner stones.
I love what she did with the zig zag border.
I also love the straight lines she did on the red border.
The next 5 blocks are this months "Farmer's Wife" blocks that Joy and I are doing.




I was able to sew 21 Klosjes so far this month. I have another 16 ready to stitch. I think it takes more time prepping them that it does to sew them.
That's all for this week. We are still waiting on the results of my mom's biopsy and should know more on Tuesday.

I hope everyone has a fantastic, healthy, productive week.

And are you nearly insane after making your quilt? I have always chuckled at the name of the book "Nearly Insane". Quite an accomplishment to have made your quilt.

Your quilt looks fabulous and will be nice on your bed for the summer. Excellent Farmer's Wife blocks and good job with the klosjes. It does take longer to prep then stitch.
