Scrap Slab Triangle Quilts

 These are all the scrap slab triangle quilts I have made. Each one is a bit different, has a different inspiration and something about the design is different from  each of the others. The top quilt is the newest.  If you want to make a scrap slab triangle quilt of your own, you can get my tutorial at my Etsy shop, here. You will also need a Tri-Recs ruler template, which you can get at any quilt shop.

Wavelength, 2018
 In this version, I wanted to make the black and white side triangles do a kind of wave by surrounding each diamond with dark and light triangles.


Sparkling Winkel, 2017
 I was inspired by the colors in my granddaughter's toy: red, yellow, light and dark blues, and a red. The wide variety of black on white fabrics that make up the background help this quilt "sparkle."

Snow Day, 2017
 I was inspired by the view outside my window in late winter - the shadows on the snow in the woodland behind my house. The colors are spare and cool, and the relatively light black on white fabrics contribute to the cool, snowy feeling of this quilt.

Treasure Trove, 2017
 This quilt was inspired by the cool colors in a necklace I own - jewel tones of turquoise, sapphire, ruby, amber and emerald green.

Fruit Loops, 2016
This is the first scrap slabs quilt. I made triangle blocks of colors from my scrap bins. I chose these to start with because they are among my favorite colors - bright and happy. I had intended to make blocks with all the colors from my scrap bins before I designed a quilt, but these colors were so happy I just had to start playing.  This is a completely random arrangement. The only rule was that blocks of the same color couldn't be next to each other.
