Toes In The Sand

i have decided to jump on board with the Toes In The Sand Quilt Along.

it really didn't take much to get me there. i just needed the pattern booklet.

if you have not heard about Toes In The Sand quilt pattern it is designed and written by Julie of Jaybird Quilts using her Hex N More ruler.  when it came to picking the fabric for this quilt i paused.... but only for a moment.  i have a stash of Prince Charming by Tula Pink.  i used this fabric for my Cartwheels quilt that i made in Sisters at a class from Tula.  for some crazy reason i over bought on..... every pattern.  ;-)

here are the blocks i have made so far.

blocks #1

blocks #2

blocks #3

as i said before i over bought on fabric for my Cartwheels quilt.  i had a grand idea to use this print for my background fabric on that quilt.

as usual my grand ideas are never thought all the way through.  i actually thought i would be able to pattern match this print in that quilt.  LMAO.....  crazy i know.  so now enter a more reasonable idea.  to use it as my setting fabric for Toes In The Sand.  i think that the large setting triangles in this fabric will be great with the various fun triangle blocks.  plus i need to do something with the yards and yards of this fabric.  

check back to see my progress.

happy sewing
