Toes in the Sand in Tula Pink Daydreamer: 10th Anniversary Edition

Tuesday, October 12, 2021
Toes in the Sand Block of the Month Quilt

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".

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: 

  1. New colors for the block directions. 
  2. An updated quilt top layout.  
  3. 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 we'll send it to you as soon as the PDF is available.

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.

toes in the sand was my very first Jaybird Quilt project and I loved every bit of it. The quilt I made was recently claimed by a friend's husband who could not get over how intricate the work was...a testament to great instructions. Have made many more of your pattens since but Toes will have a special slot in my finished quilts.

I love this pattern! And I've been waiting to make it since I wanted to figure out how to make it a queen. Sometimes procrastination pays! I will be joining this QAL! Thank you!
