My Insanity Quilt

Well, I am down to binding my Insanity Quilt. It is made from one Jelly Roll, one and a half mini Charm Packs, the borders are from a Layer Cake of all different polka dotted fabrics, and the back and the binding are pink and white polka dot fabric. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to how the strips of the Jelly Roll are sewn together with the solids in between, so I think of the front as the insane part of life and the back as the sane part.I couldn’t call it my Crazy Quilt, so I opted for my Insanity Quilt. It is very colorful and soft, but I tend to lean toward the more traditional patterns for my pieces. I will repost when the binding is finished being hand sewn, and it is washed and fluffy.
