Block 28 & 96 - Tazzie

Sadly for me, this past week I still have not had the opportunity to stitch on my NI blocks - I'm on a deadline, and attention must be paid! I'm missing these tiny blocks like mad, but fortunately I have found two I have neglected to blog about, so I can share them with you now.

Here is block 28. From what I recall, it was quite a fiddly one to put together. I think I foundation pieced it in certain sections, and simply rotary cut and pieced other sections.

The green fabric is one of the fq's I purchased while in the USA, and the red was from Donna's scrap bag. Good times!
And this is block 96. Many pieces from Donna's scrap bag once again. The coral coloured fabric is an oldie but a goodie - it was a left over from my Dear Jane quilt. I have no idea how it came into my stash, I would hazard a guess that Linda sent it to me. She's responsible for most of my reproduction fabrics of old.

Hopefully it won't be long before I can get back into the NI piecing. I'll check back in soon. xox

I have had the Nearly Insane book for several years and am now thinking about starting it. I have all the Dear Jane blocks finished, but not the border. Not sure what I will do.
I was wondering how to join the Nearly Insane Fans, please let me know.
