That Nearly Insane UFO ----


It's still in a box. I haven't worked on it for at least 5 years. Will I ever get back around to it?

This is a grainy picture of where I last left off on it ---Poor Quilt. Someday, Maybe. Someday!

It is really beautiful Bonnie! I am sure you will get back to it and it will be worth the wait!

Quiet Quilter said...

Sure you will...You may have a "I want to do something, but don't know what" moment and really go to town!

Janet O. said...

Just curious what made you come across this in the wee hours of the morning? It is a visual treat!

Grammasheri said...

Bonnie its gorgeous! It has a southwest look to it. (Um...I live in Arizona...just sayin';D) Its definitely worth finishing!

Nicky said...

Could it be a travelling project once the hex quilt is finished?

sewkalico said...

Well the title of the quilt suits us quilters... so it's meant to be! Maybe just not now. We all need our skeletons... err... I mean the odd UFO's n the closet ;-)

Celia said...

beautiful colours and great blocks... please finish it because its worth it !

Julie Fukuda said...

I think I would shove a few things out of the way. It's waited long enough!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

This one is incredible, definitely one to make a reappearance... whenever you're ready~

Peyton said...

well Miss Bonnie....

that is an AWESOME quilt-in-progress

if you were ever to re-home any of your WIPS, I'm sure that there would be a great many fans only too willing to oblige!!

Ebrecken said...

Wow that is so beautiful. It will be so breathtaking when you get finished. I am sure you will get back to it soon, if you posted it on the wall it must be calling out to you. LOL.

OMG! You really need to use the leader/ender process and fish this. I told neon my online friends about your system and that just last week I got several blocks done that way!

Uh, why not put a border around it as is, and a sleeve on the back to turn it into a wall hanging. Saw a great "half-lone star" at the quilt show this past weekend. Made a great wall hanging. Just saying...that will help eliminate one more UFO. :)

You put a lot of work into it, it would be a shame not to finish it. It is quite lovely.

Cathy said...

Bonnie, I am sure you will finish that one day, maybe this winter. It is lovely and looks like you put a lot of work into it already.

Ok gonna try to post a comment again...lol...I too bought both Nearly Insane and Farmer's Wife this past winter. My intention was to work on one block for each a month, no rush to finish the project. Just something to use my stash with. Now, have I worked on either one in months? NOPE...so Bonnie, you have inspired me to atleast go look at the books!! LOL I think I have to finish a customer's quilt first though...she might want it back sometime soon! lol Happy quilting!

Michelle said...

What a beautiful quilt. I wish my UFO's looked like that.

Ann Davis said...

Very beautiful!

Jennifer said...

Wow! if you don't, I'd be happy to take it off your hands ; )

Linda V said...

I agree with Jennifer above that wants to take it off your hands. It is wonderful! You must finish it, or send it on it's way! Is there someone in your family or a friend who could help?

My niece just discovered that book yesterday and brought it to my attention. She finished an awesome Dear Jane quilt a year or so ago so she will probably make one of these too.

I am sure you will finish this one. do you have the blocks all done or is this as far as you are with them? Could you just do some rearranging and make it square?

Helen in Switzerland said...

Bonnie, it's gorgeous and it would be such a shame not to finish it!!

YankeeQuilter said...

I remember when you started this quilt...no rush...five years just barely qualifies as a UFO in my house! Maybe get back to it when you finish your hexagon quilt!

WhiteStone said...

It's gorgeous!

marcella said...

So beautiful! That quilt has been on my wish list for so long. Someday I'm going to pull out that book and make it just for me :-)

Kristie said...

It is so beautiful! I love these quilts! I started mine with Tazzie and only ended up with 13 blocks and it is in a box! Of course, she finished hers and is now quilting it! :( Someday I would love to get back to mine too.

Yours is lovely!!!

I was insane enough to buy the book.... does that count???

Beth said...

OMG Bonnie, that quilt is just amazing! You really have to finish it. It would be a shame to keep that beauty hidden in a box half done. Just sayin...

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Finish it Bonnie. It looks wonderful. All my quilts are UFOs except or hmmmm 3?

Lois Arnold said...

Bonnie, I gave you the Blog on Fire award. You can read about it on my blog: http://loisarnold.blogspot.com. I so enjoy reading your posts both the quilt ones and the book recommendation ones.

Liz said...

Bonnie...your quilt is beautiful. Seeing as it took me four years to complete my original one, you are not that far behind!!!
Hope you can find time to finish this one...it's so worth it.

I have so many UFO's but I'd adopt that one in a heartbeat. It's gorgeous!

Tazzie said...

Hey there Bonnie hon, your NI is just adorable, and I'm sure you'll get back to it at some stage. I see you've done two of the trickiest blocks already, so the rest will be a breeze!!
*hugs*

EileenKNY said...

OOH Bonnie,
I love those colors! You have to finish this quilt. How about as handwork once the hexie quilt is done? Hmm................?

Brenda R said...

Hi Bonnie
I agree it is so beautiful and is either "haunting you" or "begging to be finished" make this a leader:ender project and get er done.. Cuz she's too pretty not to finish
