Nearly Insane…Nearing the Finishing Line…Blocks 1 to 7

An update on my Nearly Insane Quilt, based on a 19th century quilt by Salinda Rupp, has been long overdue. As I have now less than 20 blocks to finish, I’ll start sharing the finished blocks in a series of posts, row by row! The blocks are all set on point, with 7 and 6 blocks in the alternating rows.

The blocks are 6″ square and except for a few, foundation paper pieced by me.  I drafted all the patterns for FPP on the free Quilt Assistant software, based on patterns in Liz Lois’s book, which contains only line drawings of the finished blocks.

Most of the fabric used is Summer Breeze 3  (with a fat quarter bundle of matching solids) by Moda Fabrics, and the Dutch Garden 2 Collection by Boundless Fabric. I also used a couple FQs in blues and greens plus a jelly roll of yellows I had in my stash.

So here comes Row One, with seven blocks!
