Toes in the sand

IMG_2522Another column of toes has been completed for the dinosaur quilt.

Normally, I work on these a pair at a time. but I found myself with a full free afternoon the other day so I decided to set up an assembly line and bang out all six pairs needed for the column all at once.

It took a couple hours, but I’m now more than halfway done on this top, and it’s a good feeling.

When I started this one, I thought it was going to be a quick little baby quilt, but we all learned how that turned out.

Still. I’m glad I decided to continue on and make it to its full potential because it’s going to be one really cool quilt when it’s complete.

I’m still debating whether to have all the columns going the same way, or to make them opposite…

… but I have decided that I’m definitely putting sashing between each column. I’ve got a very neat grey fabric that looks a little like stone. It’s going to be perfect.

While I finish up the last column of toes, I encourage you to watch this Time Team special episode. You’ll see where I got some of the inspiration for these tracks!

    It is funny how tops seem to grow as you work on them. Same thing is happening with what was supposed to be my little hexie quilt.

    Love your fabric and design! It is going to be a beautiful quilt. I really can’t say that I prefer one layout over the other. You always seem to have just the perfect fabric for sashing and cornerstones.
