Toes in the Sand

A finish to report!  This is Toes in the Sand, a FQS Block of the Month, using the Jaybird Quilts Hex-n-More ruler.  It was definitely a fun project, and it involved lots and lots of IRONING with STARCH.  Just look at all those bias edges... 

It's the PB&J fabric line - this is the one I chose as my color inspiration for my basement family room, so of course I have to have at least a couple of quilts from it to toss over various pieces of [old and tattered] furniture.  This definitely adds some much needed color to my 15 year old brown couch.  

My dear friend Tammy sent me these labels many years ago, after I dared to make a baby quilt for her little boy and give it to her with no label.  

The back is various pieces of yardage from the line.  Makes it a fun one!

The sun was bright on picture day!  And the grass needed to be mowed. 

This one I'm definitely keeping for me.  It's already made lots of forts, been spilled on, fought over, and cuddled under while watching movies on a rainy Saturday.  Definitely a keeper. 


  1. Your version of Toes in the Sand is beautiful! So well done! I have the ruler. . . just haven't opened it yet ;) sooon!

  2. Oh I like that quilt. Well done! I love hearing about quilts that are actually getting used and not just sitting an a shelf somewhere after they're finished.

  3. It's beautiful! And what could be better than a quilt fort?
