    Susan – you always come up with the most interesting blocks. I just love your latest technique #166. I’m chomping at the bit to try it so I better get going on these unfinished Christmas projects. Stay happy and keep creating.

    I have just completed a quilt with your above block that was 6 squares across, and 7 down for my daughter ‘s birthday, using quite a few of the charm squares I have collected….she loved it, would send picture but am not sure how……thank you for this demo.

    Love this idea and made a Christmas gift for my Mom in Ontario, Canada based on your video. This is the second delicious quilt you have inspired me to put together this year! My table mat/ runner was made up of non sashed 2.5″ blocks and I used your double mitred border idea to finish it. You are very inspiring to me so I thank you for your hard work and great teaching!
