Kris, I too will be eventually doing this BOM with Brackman. I promised myself I had to get certain things done first and then start it. Elaine, your block is done but will not be mailed until later this week. Sabrina, your block is almost done but will also not be mailed until later this week Karla, I have mislaid your fabric. That is on my list tomorrow to tear up Jack until I find it!!!!!!!

I've been telling myself the same thing for quite some time now but something always comes up that I can't say no to.

Kris, that is just my problem, but I hate owing something to someone. I worries me to no end.

I can't find the May Birthday discussion thread so I thought I'd post it here.  Since getting home, I've been putting my sewing room together and gathered all the lovely birthday blocks I received from all of you.  Wanted to share this with you as well as thank you all once again:

Barbara, I thought about doing that same thing - making two quilts from all the blocks. Then I saw this quilt and layout and thought I might be able to put them all into one quilt.  I think this one is set on point, with the pieced sashings and 9 patch cornerstones:

 

What do y'all think?  Would this work?

I like this layout too. This was from Barbara Brackman's block of the week last year. The book was recently recently released.

Kris, thank you for letting me know the book is on the market!  It'll be so much easier calculating the sashing strips and 9 patch size variations if I have the original dimensions to play off of. I use up more than enough brain cells at work, didn't want to have to sit down and work this out on my own too. That's what makes quilting "work" for me - and that's not why I quilt. :-)

I got all my birthday blocks from last years made into a quilt top. To all of you wonderful ladies who made me a block (or 2) they really made my quilt wonderful. I received 16 blocks, but I didn't want a square quilt so I made 4 additional ones.
