blocks of the month covering my design wall

My design wall is covered with these large triangular blocks.  The block of the month is being sponsored by The Gathering Place of Rupert Idaho.  We have done 18 and still have 6 more to go.  The fabrics are provided in a kit each month and are all by Kaffe Fassett.  The patterns come from a book by Jaybird Quilts called Toes in the Sand.  I love the ruler they designed that works so well with these patterns.  It's been fun doing these blocks because of the fabrics that I never would have chosen plus I'm not that much into triangular blocks!  I guess it's pushing me a little outside of my comfort zone.

There are a few other BOM's on the far side of the wall, but I have been more focused on trying to keep up with the triangles.  If you want to find out what others are working on be sure to stop by What a Hoot Quilts BOM's Away or Pretty Bobbins to check it out.
This is also on the wall.  The squares are 1" finished except for the yellow centers in the flowers which are 1/2" finished.  It is a 12 1/2" unfinished block.  Check out what others are working on at Judy's  Patchwork Times.


  1. Hi, Gail! :) Thanks for the mention. - These triangle blocks are really intriguing. I've never done any like that!

  2. They are definately different. Not fabric I would have picked but you are breaking out of your comfort zone nicely.

  3. They look great together, very sugary and girly!

  4. Such pretty colours! So soft and lovely <3 thanks for linking up!
