W.i.P Wednesday: Back to the Beach

It's hard to believe we've made it to Block 12 of our Toes in the Sand BOM at Quilter's Way.  I've pretty much abandoned using the fabrics provided for the month and just pull from the scraps from previous months to create the blocks I want.

No construction surprises...  at this point I can whip these up pretty quickly:-)  My only tip is to press the triangles around the center hexagon in the opposite direction of how you press the outer ring.  In my case I pressed the chevron triangles towards the center hexagon and the aqua triangles away from the floral hexagons.  That way your seam allowances will nest and give you pretty points.

We're going to take a month off and meet up again in May to show off our completed tops.  I can't wait to see this one finished!!!  It'll be perfectly beachy for summer... if it ever stops snowing around here;-)

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Checking in at this week's W.i.P. Wednesday:-)


  1. I've been seeing this pattern around the web. I've had my own nightmare with a hexagon quilt so I'm amazed at your bravery! I, too, in Wisconsin, am anxious to get this winter over with!

  2. These are looking fabulous. I totally agree with you on using up your scraps from previous month. I am totally loving the aqua and the bright floral block colors!

  3. Lovely blocks, I like to choose my fabrics as the mood takes me too, good luck with your finish x
