Back in 2005 I started my first Dear Jane quilt and finished it, I finished the top in 2008 and it sat aside for about a year before I quilted it – and finished it!! but crazy me when I got done piecing it in 2008 I really missed working on those little bitty pieces and started a second one in a totally different color pattern. I finished the the second top in less time – finished in 2010. The first is called “Insanity” and the second was “Insanity Revisited” as I felt surely I was insane at times to begin a second one! I am linking up with Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday today.
So this is the second Dear Jane – Insanity Revisited which will go on the frame when the POTC comes off of it. I still need to put the scallop border on it – but I do that by attaching strips to the sides and then draw the scallops on – quilt and then cut the scallops after I take it off the frame. The scallops will be the buttercream fabric and the binding the red.
The first Dear Jane “Insanity” on the side bar if you click on it you can find the old stories about it.
I was cleaning a lot yesterday morning – pulling furniture out from their spots so I could vacuum underneath and in back of, (believe me I do not do this often!) when I realized my vacuum wasn’t really working all that well – it is not old – well how many of you actually clean out the underside of your vacuum – I must admit to having forgotten to do this for awhile – look at all those threads caught up LOL – I had to sit on the floor with little scissors and start to cut it all out – no wonder it really wasn’t picking up the dirt very well.
I had a nice big nest when I got done with it! So let this be a reminder to you – check the underside next time you get your vacuum out
this is where I pick up on Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC) last night – then roll it down and work all the way across and I will be half way done!
I mentioned a possible border for the Diamonds are Forever hexie quilt – I have always liked this applique border and this might be what I choose to do.
Ready for more circle prep work for the “Granny’s Got Style” I thought I had a photo of the Prairie Points that I did yesterday – I have the whole chain attached to the 3rd row – I will show it later.

Here is a link to a new fabric – made in the US with cotton grown in Arkansas and the fabric made in South Carolina! Hancocks of Paducah is selling it now – has anyone used it and have an opinion – good price and lots of colors – solids only for now.
