Toes in the Sand – A feast of easy triangles

11 04 2015

I have been having a bit of fun recreating a Jaybird Quilts ( Block of the Month.  I will run this as a monthly BOM starting late May early June 2015.  All of the blocks in the quilt are made using the Hex N More ruler.  This ruler is a Jaybird Quilts designed tool and is very clever.

Here are some photos of me using the Hex N More on a different quilt block, cutting triangles and hexagons.  Using this ruler means that putting together these, and other shapes go together like a dream.

Anyway, the BOM I have been remaking is Toes in the Sand.  It is made up of 24 different triangles, set in more triangles.  Each month, you make two blocks in the same way, but the way you place the fabrics will make them look very different, so by the end, you have 24 really cool, different triangles.  This shows the original pattern and colours.

ToesintheSand-Pattern_Cover_WebI am offering it in two colourways, one similar to those originally used and one in autumn tones.  Both options have batiks as the main fabric and Kona Cotton as the setting triangles.



Here are the 24 autumn tone blocks.  There is a bit of variation in the quality of the lighting as I took these as I finished them, some in the day, some at night, all on my ironing board in the kitchen.  In each pair, one is more subtle than the other.  This will be important when I lay them out into the finished quilt placement.
