    My Insanity

    I entered Insanity in our local quilt show and won third place! Not bad I thought..then at the end of the show when the viewer's choice ballots were counted I had won the Viewers Choice blue ribbon!!
    Insanity has 15,073 pieces, all batiks. I used Bonnie Hunter's pattern but reduced it a smidge to make the blocks 5" (I didn't want to waste paper and only print one block per page!). You can see where the name came from

    congratulations. what a wonderful quilt and a ribbon too!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Oh my goodness, congratulations! The people were right! I hope that basket is full of quilting goodies.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.
