the last two blocks of the cwbq

now i am thinking about the borders,it is going on,happy 2010,to you all,susi


  1. Susi, congratulations on finishing your last block. They look fantastic together. Good on you to get them done in quick time. Hope you had a nice Christmas in Germany. Happy New Year Susi - Hugs Natima

  2. they look so wonderful, Makes my heart sing. One day I will get to make them, (Hopefully April when it is my birthday).

  3. Susi all you block look great together. Love the house block.Have fun with the borders :-)

  4. They look great! This is a very great quilt! I also hope to make it someday!

  5. Wow! Fantastic work! Congratulations on reaching such a milestone!

  6. Yeah Susi!!!!

    Wow! You are amazing! I love how all the blocks look together! I, too, have decided to draft another urn block like you and Lurline to balance the design and be the corner blocks.

    I love the berry sprigs in with the flowers - very fresh!! I've been thinking about your glorious honeymoon cottage for the couple - if OK with you, I may add one to my collection of blocks.

    Looking at all the blocks together, I think the fact that you added the handsome groom IN WITH THE BRIDE is just smashing!! It looks like they, together, are looking at the rest of the blocks as their "bounty" and are very proud.

    You are such an inspiration to all of us to move on with CTBQ now that the holidays are coming to a close. I glued up a couple of blocks (numbers 9 and 10 for me) before Christmas and have one finished and another one stitching. When they are done and sized, I will be half way!

    I can't wait to see your beautiful borders. Well done, dear!!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  7. Susis,

    I am so envious, your blocks look just beautiful together. How inspiring to those of us who are still on block 3. We will all get there in our own time.
    The blocks will just pull together beautifully with the borders.
    Congrats on the finish, what an accomplishment!


  8. Wow Susi, you are an amazing stitching machine. The blocks look gorgeous all together, can't wait 'till I get to that stage, you are definitely an inspiration to the rest of us. Looking forward to seeing what you are going to do with the borders.

  9. Your last 2 blocks are gorgeous Susi!! What a wonderful quilt - alive with color and so very interesting. Have fun with the borders.

  10. Susi, congratulations. wow you were quick. I like your block with the groom, well they all look smashing. Looking forward seeing your border
