Black CQ...(what else)

 
A bit of progress, I am working on the top left section. I am really pleased with how it is going. It is losing that Block-y look. Yay!.  You can see my Post It's all over the quilt with ideas of what to add, where to extend seam treatments etc.I  can't believe how fully motivated I am to finish this now .
I am gaining a huge appreciation for those of you that embellish whole cloth quilts. I don't know how you do it.
Right, off to bed. Mum is coming over tomorrow with border ideas. Oh dear, Guess I am committed to that now .

This is absolutely glorious! I want SO badly to be able to see it in person.

Wow... you really have made the blocks disappear! How very cool! Do you think you could take some nice closeups when you are done? I know I'll never see it in person but closeups would be the next best thing. Loving this!

Jo, your quilt is just stunning. Love all the stitching and embellishing. I can only wish to see it up close and personal. :)

This is fantastic - i agree with Marty I cant bleieve you have made the blocks disappear like that - Id like to see a close up of this.

I see, so the idea is to make the whole thing look like one big piece instead of several put together. Very good! Looking forward to seeing your finished piece.=)

Your quilt is coming along great! I can't wait to see this beauty when you finish. The border sounds like fun .... what's another 40 hours of work? LOL ...

Thank you all.
Elizabeth, you made my lol...the original idea wasn't to make it look whole cloth, but it has evolved that way, which I really like. I can't quite believe that it has worked out so well either Paula!!
I will do closeups, promise.

Wow, this is coming together beautifully. I can see the blocks disappearing where you've extended the stitching. It's wonderful. Can't wait to see it finished.
