Sand Drift Quilt Progress and FAL Q3

I'm getting really excited about my new Sand Drift pattern. I finished 4 blocks, and I have 5 more to make. When I finished the fourth block, I couldn't help myself, I had to see what they looked like together...

And the pile of trimmings was looking lovely and needed to be photographed. Why not!

I still hope to have this top completed by the end of July. I'm sure the quilt will be completed by the end of FAL Q3. My first Sand Drift block was 18-inches square. However, I decided on making the quilt with 20-inch blocks. The math was just easier. So now I have a leftover 18-inch block which will become a matching throw pillow for FAL Q3. There is also another quilt design brewing in my head. When the gingers start school in 4 weeks and 5 days (who's counting?), then I should have plenty of time to make that design reality too for FAL Q3.
