I must be nearly insane to start on a new project esp. at this time of the school year. But a small group of us on a Yahoo list for this admirers of this antique quilt have decided to challenge ourselves to a block a week.
What is this project? See the link to the left. An antique quilt featured in a quilt calendar became the obsession for Liz Lois, who drafted the patterns.
Each block finishes at 6 inches (large compared to Dear Jane blocks!) I forget how many there are in the whole quilt - 90?? Pictured above is my first block, labeled #6 in the Nearly Insane book. The colors and fabrics I chose are very close to the original. I have two other blocks done, and I'll post them later this week.
