I really am going to quilt some this week!

I have been slowly but surely making progress on the pink and brown pineapple quilt. Last weekend me and my mom went out and found some brown fabric to make the border with, but now I have a crazy idea in my head that it needs more than just a huge solid color border. I am going to put on a skinny 1.5 inch brown border. Then I have taken all the left over 2 inch pink strips and pieced them into a rail fence type block which is three strips wide.

After this border I will put on another solid brown border. And then on to the quilting!

I have another good reason for getting this quilt finished - I need to make a wedding quilt for two friends that are getting married in December. Now usually I don't make wedding quilts. We go to church with lots of college kids and if I made each of them a quilt when they got married, I would have no time for anything else. But the two people getting married are an older (than me) couple. She has been married before and has grown kids. The groom I am not sure about. Anyway, they are both so sweet and they are both so happy. I have put the groom in charge of finding out what her favorite colors are!

Time to get busy!

your border idea sounds great. You need to get busy not only because of the wedding though, I'd be afraid you'd come up with yet another great plan for the border that involved yet more small pieces! :-)
