Not Skittles

I spent Friday morning cutting the side triangles for the scrap slab blocks, and the afternoon and evening sewing the blocks together. There they are at the bottom of this photo.

I started arranging the blocks, and soon got to this. I had a lot of blocks left, so I made it bigger.

This is it, and finished it will be about 60" x 72". I'll sew the blocks together in the next few days. Looking at it, I also realized it has new name.

Fruit Loops.


Yes, I will continue making scrap slab triangle in other colors, cleaning out the little accessory bins. I really liked the red layout in yesterday's post. I'll definitely use that one for another version.

Love this quilt...do you ever consider patterning your work? (I know you have done so for your birds). You have such creative ideas...!!

To me, it looks like a beautiful fruit salad! But whatever you call it, it is a really creative way to use scraps. Thanks for the inspiration!
