WIP Wednesday, Can You Believe It?

It's Wednesday night and it is not a day I usually post, but my friend Jen over at Glinda Quilts pointed out today that I haven't been posting much about quilting lately.  She is so right.  Sometimes we need a little push from our friends.  Today I am joining the ranks of the WIP Wednesday with Lee over at Freshly Pieced.

My design wall

My design wall is holding 64 of the 100 blocks I need for a quilt for my daughter.  She chose the pattern out of a magazine and suggested the colors of brown, cream, and green.  I picked the fabric and have been slowly making blocks between projects.

My daughter requested a king size quilt with pillow shams to match.  I have been sewing half square triangles as I make each block.  The HSTs will become the pillow shams.

I only have 36 more of these blocks to go and then I can start with borders.  My goal is to finish the top by the end of August.  I can't wait to give this to my beautiful daughter, Trista.

She has bought her very own house and needs a new quilt to go with it.
