I'm having a happy day! It all started with this
and the fact that my hubby was going to be out of town for 10 days. It has been years since his job has taken him away for that long and I was concerned that I'd either be bored or lonesome. No better time to start a new project, huh? And the perfect time to attempt something that you thought you'd never try!! First, I scoured my basement for the perfect fabrics and started cutting away:
Next, I had to discover the perfect size middle piece for the eventual blocks, so I wasted the first bunch of squares, but it was a lesson well learned:
Next, I had to determine how many blocks I'd need. (I was going to do some for the back too, but after I discovered how long it took to make a bunch of these, I canned that idea in a big hurry.) LOL
Let me tell you, I was working on those blocks day and night and getting mighty tired of doing the same thing over and over again. (Think a little ADD here, maybe???? Duh!!) Anyway, the weekend flew by, and soon I wasn't even answering the phone, I was so consumed to finish. This quilt was taking longer than any I had EVER done and I couldn't wait to put it together. But, when I did........I was perplexed on what to name it so I waited two whole days to post it to Flickr. I do think that I did come up with the perfect name though...because it did drive me a bit insane. I'm proud to show you, "Squared Insanity"...which made the Front Page of EXPLORE today. YEAH!!!!!!! I'm standing here doing the happy dance, I'm so excited!!
