Just Plain Nuts!

Better known as what a woman of a certain age does with herself at 2 am.
This is a 6 1/2" unfinished block.
It is one of my favorites from Liz Lois's book,
Just Plain Nuts.
My enabler, Debbie, sold me on the idea of returning to my first love, 
small scale piecing.
There have been requests at The Olde World Quilt Shoppe for a class on piecing miniatures.  Do you think I will find some other thoroughly insane quilters to join us in this venture?

I also finally put the binding on my daughters modern nine patch quilt, so I can take another WIP off the list.  Phew, just in time! Always have to finish something before I add another project to the list.

  2. What a fun and so cute little block!
    I wonder if people are tiring of small block samplers? Hard to know unless you put it out there.

  3. Lovely small block! I have started Liz's Nearly Insane blocks years ago... hmm... as I started your 1800's sampler... the miniature blocks are fascinating! So maybe your course will be full of insane quilters;o)

  11. It's a beautiful block. I love your choice of red and green. And your piecing is so precise! Did you stitch it by hand, by machine, paper piece it...? I love miniatures but I usually think of them as small scale quilts - for walls or baby or doll quilts. But gosh, when I see miniatures in a large quilt, I am in awe!

  13. You're definitely a very precise piecer. Your block is so beautifully done. At least your blocks are larger than the Jane insane blocks.

  15. beautiful little block!
    I don't know what your 'certain age' is but at mine, I'm finding I sometimes enjoy middle of the night sewing-- reading puts me right to sleep anymore.
