Making Scrap Slab Triangles

I've got a lot going on at home. I just finished my taxes (yay!) and I'm determined to finally organize my office. It's the room where the paper tiger rules, and everything else goes to die, and I really want to clear all that out. There are also things in there I haven't touched since I moved in. I've decided to try to work in there for a at least a half hour a day. My goal is to get a full hour in. So far I've done that, and although it's slow going, I'm feeling good about it.

Once I've fulfilled my self imposed task of cleaning out stuff in the office, I reward myself by spending some time in the studio. Since I like the Whirlygig quilt more than I thought I would, I decided to make scrap slabs and cut triangles from them. I like seeing how the triangles look after I've cut them from the slab. Unless you line them back up like I did here, they don't look like they are connected at all!

If you want to make a scrap slab quilt, you can get my tutorial here, at my Etsy shop.

I am making one myself now. I bought your tutorial when I bought your bird tutorial. I have made the birds about five times. Sorted my scraps recently and finally made time to do slabs. Should be interesting.

I love your scrap slabs. I am a bit intimidated to sew triangles like these because I can't chain piece them and am afraid I would get lost in the seams.

Thank you for an exciting blog I read most days. I was looking for a robot vacuum and I remembered you posted about yours and I cannot find a reference to them. Could you help me on what you like and what ones you have.
Thank you for your time.
