Triangle Scrap Slab Magic



OK, so you have scraps, and you sew them into slabs.

 And you lay your template on it, and you say, "DAMMIT." But fear not, just remember these words:

 "If it's too big, cut it off, and if it's too small, just add to it." Here I've lopped a chunk off the top and added it to the side.

 And see those extra triangular bits on each side? You can put those to good use too.

although you may have to hunt for them...

YES!!! OMG, am I having fun with these! Not only is it great fun clearing out the little scrap bins, but making these scrappy triangles is fun.

These are terrific! I have slabs of fabric sewn together that I add to and this would be so great to do.

I love the idea of your scrappy, slabby triangles. I have always loved the idea of "made" fabric, especially when organized around one color...so cool! Your Grand Prismatic is outstanding!

What a wonderful way to use the scraps. I like that you made a slab then cut the template. It adds more movement to the quilt.
