Scrap Slab Wrap Up

We had a lot of fun on Saturday making scrap slabs at Quilted Threads.

A big advantage of a class is being able to put a lot of blocks up on the design wall and play with them to see what kinds of things happen.

Surprising things can happen.

We all liked this when it was up on the wall, then the students made one change, and we all liked it better!

This prompted a discussion about the importance of the placement of the black on white side triangles and whether to sew them to the colored triangle shapes before working out an arrangement, and how we all develop rules about what can and can't go next to each other (too many blocks with the same print, etc.)

It was a great class and we all had a good time.

My travel kit worked out great, and I knew there was a reason the suitcase I used was my least favorite suitcase. I think I will go suitcase shopping for something that fits and works a bit better. (And yes, I will bring the current one to make sure everything fits.)

If you would like to make a scrap slab triangle quilt, you can get my tutorial here, at my Etsy shop. It's an instant download so you can get started right away.
