Quilt Inspiration 2010: Dear Jane and Nearly Insane

These magnificent quilts were made by quilters in the U.S., Norway, France, Ireland, and South Africa. They were featured in an article called Crazy about Jane; and in a sequel, Crazy about Jane, Nearly Insane and Just Plain Nuts. The full quilts have approximately 5000 pieces. We are in awe of these quilters, and of the perseverance it takes to complete such a project !
