Kristen's Quilt - Toes in the Sand

Check out this beauty that Kristen from Stash made for a block of the month club starting in March.  It is called "Toes in the Sand" and is a pattern by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts.  Kristen made her quilt from fabrics by Tula Pink called "Saltwater" and she wanted it to look beachy or have a water feel to it.  I quilted wavy lines and diagonal lines in the blocks.  Here are some pictures.  Sorry I went a little overboard  on the pictures but I love this quilt!

Hope you enjoyed the show!  I made this quilt up too and hope to quilt it soon.  If you haven't checked out this pattern yet, I highly suggest you do.  One warning's addictive.  I made my quilt in two weeks because I couldn't stop.  Another tip....It calls for 51 fat eights and I made mine with a bundle of 40 fat eights.  Just use some of the little pieces leftover.  Works out great and I had scraps to spare.

Happy Quilting!
