    I have both of those books and the Nearly Insane book and the Just Plain Nuts :) I think I want something totally different though for right now - I might design something myself - who knows - next is to finish up a few things I am close to finishing.

    382 hours for the second Dear Jane - I started it 2 years and 8 months ago. I would have finished it faster but I was working on I don't know how many other projects and finish quite a few others in that time period.

    I'm not familiar with "Affairs of the Heart" I would have to see it.

    I just looked up Affairs of the Heart - it sounded familiar and as soon as I saw the photo I remembered it. I am more than half way done with a Red and Green Traditional applique that I will be concentrating on and also one called "Little Brown Bird" of which I decided I do not like most of the blocks. I have two blocks done and decided I will use these blocks but design a totally different quilt using those two blocks in it - it will no longer be Little Brown Bird - it is too fussy for my taste after all. I think I will be doing a lot of applique this year while trying to get caught up on my hand quilting - I will have 3 large quilts waiting in line to be quilted soon.

    Oh MY! That is a beautiful quilt! I am working on mine, and I WILL finish it, sometime!
    I am not sure I will tackle another, but then I may. After the first one, the second will be known, at least!

    Stunning & Lovely!!! I love the simplicity and striking effect of two colors. :thumbup:

    I am getting close to the finish line on my first Jane, four corners to go and sewing the rows and triangles together this month. :lol:
