Birthday Quilt

Here's what's happening with my birthday signature quilt.
Here are the 4 blocks I received during  Sisters show week. Thank you Andrea, Bonnie, Darlyn, and Debbie.
One more from Lori in the mail today. Thank you!
I left a space to add two blocks. One I received today and the next one I receive will go on the front. Any other blocks coming in after that will go on the back.
When I went to Eagle Crest I brought the sashing, cornerstone and setting fabric with me. The tan setting triangles are 2 different Primitive Gatherings prints. I proceeded to cut every setting triangle I needed the WRONG size! I didn't include the sashing when I was figuring out how large to cut my squares.  What did I do? Sewed two triangles together to make one setting triangle. Of course, they are on the bias and much too big. So when you see the outer triangles now you know why they are so funky! As soon as it is all together and my cutting area is cleaned up I'll give it a nice trim and it will be lovely! Thank you all again for participating!! It is going to be a very special quilt.

  21. Wonderful quilt! I always cut at least one thing wrong these days. I think I need to measure three times, cut once and don't get interrupted in the meantime! Your setting triangles will be fine after quilting I'm sure!
