More on Dear Jane – My Insanity Revisited – Only a little more to work on it last night and then on to the scallops on that border. Someone asked about the Insanity theme going on and what was with that! LOL. Well back in 2005 I started to work on my first Dear Jane quilt – that journey took me 5 years and 9 months before it was completed in 2009 (all hand pieced and hand quilted) – by time I was about half way through with it I said it was making me go “insane” hence the name of the quilt “Insanity”. (photo at that link) (numerous postings on this quilt while I was quilting it in 2009 lots of photos if you wish to wander on back and look through posts) When I finished piecing the quilt in 2008 within a month I kind of missed working on all those small blocks and I started a second one – well no sooner had I got started with it that I started to think of a name for it – that’s right “Insanity Revisited” as quickly I was thinking what the heck was I doing making a second one.
When I started to cut all the pieces needed for the mini tumbler quilt I had only been quilting on Insanity Revisited for a short while and someone who had been following the adventures of the Dear Jane quilts suggested the name “Tumbling into Insanity” for the tumblers quilt – so that is how that name was selected – I had intended to hand piece it but then with the arthritis in the hands acting up more and more over the last six months I changed my mind and I am machine piecing it instead and it will be machine quilted also (I think) – so it really isn’t going to be driving me insane after all so there might be a name change going on with that quilt. I am linking to Freemotion by the River today.
So anyhow here are the triangles that I worked on Sunday –
I intend to get done with this area last night – I am writing this post to schedule before I get busy with it so I don’t know if I got it done or not. My hands have not been bothering me too much this week and I do lot’s of finger stretches and take breaks too.
yesterday was a busy day full of doing laundry, getting some house cleaning done, yearly mammogram, exercise and then back home to relax and read a little bit while I had a pot of chili simmering on the stove. In between other things this past week I did pick up Floral Fantasy for 5 minutes here and there and started applique on the 3rd border with the blue flower – a lot of work on these borders still to be done.
The cutting table is pretty much cleaned off – all the scraps have been cut up from the Kansas Twister quilt and put in the appropriate boxes.
