I’ve just completed my Toes in the Sand blocks for month 6 in this program! The block is called Santa Cruz and has great movement in the block interior with all these little triangles.
Toes in the Sand, Month 6
Yes, I do have the fabrics ready-to-go for month 7 so I should be caught up with this BOM in the next week or so. I’m participating in this BOM via the Fat Quarter Shop, but you can pick up the pattern, Hex N’ More ruler, and fabrics at your local quilt shop. Or visit the designer, Julie, on her website, Jaybird Quilts.
Yes, I am behind once again on this BOM by Jaybird Quilts! I have the material all set and ready-to-go for month 6, but will blog about month 5 first. You can read about my earlier blocks here. I’m participating in this BOM via the Fat Quarter Shop.
For month 5, this BOM called for making 2 of the Torrey Pines blocks. These blocks were fun to make as some of the center triangles were made from strip sets to create extra movement in the block.
Here’s a look at my Torrey Pines blocks:

I will get to the month 6 blocks soon!
Do you know about the Sew & Show blog? The blog hostess, Madame Samm, has a large variety of quilty related blog hops throughout the year.
The last one called “Let’s Twist to the 60s with Batiks” just wrapped up and the next one is a Halloween themed hop called “Wicked.” Go check out her site and see if you want to participate in a hop on your blog or just admire all the wonderful quilty creations from everyone else!
Oh my, I haven’t blogged about the Toes in the Sand BOM since May! I got distracted by the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and some another must-do quilty projects that popped up in the last few weeks. I did get caught up with months 3 and 4 when, wouldn’t you know it, month 5 arrived in the mail! Hopefully, I’ll get month 5 finished in the next several weeks. Check out my earlier post on this BOM by Jaybird Quilts here.
For month three, we made 2 Venice Beach blocks. This block has quite a bit of movement since each triangle is cut from 4 strips of fabric sewn together. During month four, we made 2 Sonoma Coast blocks. I really like the half hexies combined with the little triangles in this block.
In the photo, the Venice Beach blocks are the top two while the Sonoma Coast blocks are the lower two.

I have to share these two pictures of my cat quilting helpers. They just can’t resist examining quilt projects when I try to take photos!

I’m working on the Toes in the Sand BOM by Jaybird Quilts as one of my year-long projects. Check out my earlier post here.
I love the blues/greens/aquas in the fabrics selected for the BOM as they do have a beachy feel to them. The fabric is PB&J by BasicGrey for Moda. Check out your local quilt store for both the Toes in the Sand pattern book and the fabric.
For month two, we made 2 of the Santa Barbara blocks. These blocks came together quickly and easily!

The weather here in Oregon has finally turned sunny so I’m going out to enjoy it for a while!
