Ah yes... ONE YEAR Later.... and another year added to the tally of my life!! It has been a fantastic year of traveling to visit you, interviewing people for my podcasts, new fabrics with the incredible Moda team, making quilts, designing patterns, creating a EPIC Facebook group, and writing my next books (yes books).
But what you REALLY want to know is...
How far along is my Birthday Block quilt!
To accompany my photos today, Paul McCartney emailed me and sent me the link to this Live version of the Birthday song (yes.. he really did email me.. I'm SURE that was from him)... Let's get to it!
The quilt is GIGANTIC. I doubt all the blocks can go on the front and then fit into a longarm machine... and I'm NOT quilting this myself.. wink! There is one section not shown on my wall.
You can see the last section, the one on the middle right .... HERE

I still have the stack of sewn sections and the blocks in groups. I've been storing them in this vintage picnic basket. I MUST get more of these. I have four of them. They stack SO WELL!
This is my group to set next. I decided today, my birthday, to do some sewing on this. I have several large quilts to do over the next 8 weeks, so the quilt will need to go up and down on the design wall to get finished!
Fuel for sorting... best fuel ever!
When i get started I need to take all the blocks for the section out and see what is what. This group has some tiny ones that won't all go in, so I'll go to the pile pick up a few more. Plus I'm adding spacers in aqua and red (see top photo again)
Coffee cup block.. a churn dash, RED and coffee cup.. best block EVER!
And do you see the clocks?? so cool! The stitchery says CREATE.. LOVE all the blocks you sent!

What do you think? Can I squeeze most of the 201 (+) into one quilt? How many do you think will need to go on the back?
