Just wanted to let everyone know I'm so sorry I haven't been around to visit lately. I'm just going through one of those slumps where I just can't keep up with everything, so I just don't find time to come visit your blogs. So please know I"m around and ok - and I'm going to be visiting even if I don't leave a comment! I have several HUGE projects due at work, and then 4 teenagers with summer "stuff"! Say nothing about the new dog!
I did find time this weekend to work on the next month of my primitive house quilt. I finished month 2 and got it added to month 1! Doesn't it look fun! Now to find time to work on the 200 other projects I need to get done! Well ok, it feels like 200 anyway!
For those of you working on the Nearly Insane quilt by Liz Lois - guess what! She spoke at our guild last night (she is the one on your right in the pictures above) and I got to see it in person last night! I took as many pictures as I could, but I ran out of time to take a lot. some of the blocks have so many pieces in that 6" block! She said she pieced all the blocks regularly by machine - no paper piecing! I think some blocks have over 200 pieces in the 6" square! She also said that some antique dealers who had seen the original antique quilt said hers was an excellent reproduction of the original - and poor Liz is still waiting to see the original! It is owned by an older couple and she has never gotten to see it. She hopes someday it will be in a museum where she can see it. So here are a few up close pics of the blocks for you to enjoy.
