In my last post I gave you this sneak peek...
Here are a couple others...
Note those tiny triangles are 1"! But never fear, it is still super easy to piece! Honestly that block (#7) is the one that intimidated me the most and I saved it for last. After piecing it I sort of felt silly because it really was so easy and it is easily my favourite block in the pattern!
Almost done...on goes the binding!!
And then its all done!!
Here she is....in all her orange glory!!
I present to you my quilt. The pattern is by Jaybird Quilts and it's called Toes in the Sand. You can use the templates included with this pattern but I much prefer to use her Hex n More ruler. It is seriously the bomb!! I've always hated piecing triangles because lining them up to match points is aways a pain. Not with Julie's ruler! She makes it so easy to get perfect points its ridiculous! (No, she didn't ask me to say that..hahaha! She also didn't ask me to promote anything for her. I just love her stuff that much. It promotes itself!)

Thank you Julie, for an amazing pattern and an amazing ruler!!
If you are interested in making your own Toes in the Sand quilt, I know Fat Quarter Shop has it and is sending it out as a block of the month. You can check that out HERE. Also make sure to add your quilt to her Flickr group HERE.
Just to show you how much I enjoyed piecing this quilt, I am going to make it again!! That's a rare occurrence for me, to make a quilt more than once. So stay tuned as I piece my second Toes in the Sand!
Just a few more bits of eye candy...
