    OMG, Nicky, that's amazing! So creative. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. OK now I'm embarrassed to post mine but here's the simple version of the blocks. I still have another border to put on.

    Goodness, Whitepine, why would you be embarassed? Yours is beautiful! I love how you did the cornerstones in different colors as well as the border. It's finished and I love it.

    Whitepine: your's is so bright and cheerful. It will be sooo loved. The lights in the windows look so inviting. A home town. What is the other border you'll be putting on?

    WhitePine, I love your quilt. The only reason I added so many blocks is that I needed it much bigger. Yours is gorgeous and all the blocks go together so well.

    All I can say is, Oh My Goodness...........it's just gorgeous!! I love what you have done with your border all the way around it. It makes me look so far behind, but what an inspiration for me to get busy again!! I can't thank you enough for sharing with all of us. I have to say this is my most favortie quilt top project of all time & I can't wait to get mine put together. Thank you everyone for the wonderful inspiration that you have given to all of us!!

    Whitepine.........WOW!! Your house quilt top has turned out just as gorgeous as Nicky's & I LOVE IT too!! You girls have so impressed me so much, that I just want to get into my sewing room right now & start getting mine put together. I am currently working on two mystery tops that are almost done, then for sure I will be working on mine. Wonderful work Whitepine, thank you so much for sharing.

    Nicky, Very cool!! I love the tree beside the castle. Did you find a pattern for that one? Also love the mountains. I think I can even design that myself and use as corners in my last border. A 'must' since we have so many mountains around here.

    Nicky,
    WOW!! I am amazed at how gorgeous your quilt turned out to be. You have done an AWESOME job making it. I also hope you win a ribbon or prize at the quilt shows. You will have to share with us when you are all done. You have been such an inspiration to all of us who have followed through with the House BOM for 2011. I applaud you & thank you for making this turn out to be the best ever!!

    Cheryl, thank you for your very kind words. I am excited to see it in the shows; I have no expectations of winning anything; I just want to see it hanging, and take some good photos of it!! Thank you for hosting the 2011 Houses BOM. It was my first experience with paper piecing, and that is now my favorite technique. You are always so kind and encouraging to your fellow quilters!

    Here is a photo of my finished quilt. I waited until the Sonora show so I could get a good photo of it. As it turned out the lighting was not very good so the pic is not great either! But I am so glad this one is finished!

    Nicky, I just love your quilt. Every time I look at it I see something different. This time I saw the block with the sunset over water. Beautiful.
