Another row added - Tazzie

Last night I added another row to my Nearly Insane quilt. You can see that three of the corner blocks are in place, so I'm more than half way with the top now. (As long as you don't include the inner and outer border!)

Here is the full view of where I'm at ... hard to get a good shot of this ... the quilt is going to be a big girl!

And here's one a little closer, you can see some of the blocks a little better :-)

I was so excited to get this row in place last night that I made so many rookie errors while doing the stitching. I really think I did more 'unsewing' than sewing. Seriously! And I was so into it that I lost track of time - I was jolted into reality when Marty came into the sewing room at 1.15am and asked if I would be thinking about sleeping anytime soon ... Ooops!

Yummy!! It looks fabulous and I love the sashing Tazzie. What fabric did you use, and how much did you buy for it.
Cheers

It looks great! It's hard to visualize the overall effect when we spend so much time on the individual blocks.
