I understand, but my point is that sand is going to be all over the quilt no matter what you do. People with sandy feet will step on the quilt, grinding the sand in. Sand will be in the bathing...

Sand is going to get on the quilt anyway, front and bottom. I would just accept that and make it as easy to shake out and wash as possible.

There's a 12-step program for that. The first step is to get a bigger space. The other 11 steps are to buy more fabric to fill it up.

I flew a lot for business in the 80's and early 90's, and used the airline miles for some wonderful personal trips with DH. Even then air travel was still enjoyable, though no longer luxurious.

I love Jane Sassaman's quilts and fabrics, but I agree with you that this is not a sufficient pattern. It's probably not too hard to fussy cut the fabric in the right size squares to sew them...

I reported it too. Obviously advertising for a book not written by a quilter. What possible use would it be? It is listed on Amazon, with poor grammar shown in the pages available for viewing.
