This Block of the Month design features 12 unique blocks all created with the Hex N More Ruler. There are no pesky Y seams! Each month you'll create two blocks from the same design. Creative fabric placement will make the quilt appear to have 24 different blocks. All of the pieces are rotary cut from fabric strips and machine pieced. Toes in the Sand is a Twin size quilt, 64" x 84". You can also make a Queen size quilt, 97" x 96".Quilting is My Bliss
Toes in the Sand was my first Block of the Month design. I released in 2012 and it was my love letter to California that I designed after moving across the country from Philadelphia to San Diego. While on maternity leave this spring I recolored the design using the latest Tula Pink fabrics and the 10th anniversary edition of the quilt came to be.
I updated the book with the new book cover shown above for its 10th anniversary. The 10th anniversary edition of the book also includes the following updates or additions:
- New colors for the block directions.
- An updated quilt top layout.
- Bonus directions to make a Queen size quilt top.
If you already own a copy of the Toes in the Sand book and you'd like to download a PDF of the updated quilt top layout and the bonus directions to make a Queen size quilt top, fill out this form and you'll receive the PDF right away.
The 10th anniversary edition of the books will be shipping to shops this month. You might get an original copy or the updated version from your quilt shop.
This updated version of the quilt features all Tula Pink fabrics, including Tula Pink Solids, True Colors, Linework, and the highly anticipated Daydreamer to be released late 2021.
