My Wife’s Insanity

InsanityKaren calls one of her quilt projects Insanity. The quilt uses patterns from a book called “Dear Jane” and is based on the civil war quilt of a New England lady by the name of Jane Stickles. Every block in the main body of the quilt has a unique design as does every colored triangle shaped block in the borders and the four corner blocks. To this point, the quilt has 4,253 pieces and, when done, will probably be over 5,000. On February 23, she will have been working on this project on and off for three years. Insanity!

Karen blogs occasionally at Quilts…etc.

    Wow. Yeup – that is true insanity. I think I once worked on a quilt for three years too but it was a very simple block quilt. I called it – Laziness and Procrastination. LOL. Seriously, your wife does awesome work! I generally tend to lose interest in projects after a while so her ability to stick with such detailed and time consuming projects really amazes me.

    Well that is dedication to your craft. I've just been showing Stuart the quilt Karen made for your bed. Hopefully, I will be able to save up so she can make one for us eventually.

    I saw this before I think it was on her blog. I haven't pieced a quilt since I was a child. I still have the quilts I've made. 🙂

    You know, I've never made a quilt. I tried to sew once but the stitches never held. … Maybe I should stick to electronics and home theater. (#):)
