Toes in the Sand

In my last post I gave you this sneak peek...

Working on my Toes in the Sand quilt. Pattern by @jaybirdquilts I love how her Hex N More ruler cuts allow for perfect points!  #jaybirdquilts #treasuresandtidbits #toesinthesand #quilting #robertkaufman

Here are a couple others...

Toes in the Sand by Jaybirdquilts

My favourite block!! Those tiny triangles are 1"! ##jaybirdquilts #toesinthesand #robertkaufman #pieceocakedesigns #treasuresandtidbits

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!! 

It's done! It's done!! Time to throw it in the wash and dryer to make it all squishy!! :) Full pictures tomorrow! #toesinthesand #robertkaufman #treasuresandtidbits #jaybirdquilts

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!) 

My third finish for 2013!! I love it!! Pattern is Toes in the Sand by @jaybirdquilts. Fabric is Treasures and Tidbits by Piece O Cake Deaigns for @robertkaufman @allieheath :)
Began 12-27-12 and finished on 01-24-13
Pieced and quilted by me
Fabric is Treasures and Tidbits by Piece O' Cake Designs for Robert Kaufman

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...
