My Slabs

No automatic alt text available.

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be mostly blue and turquoise.

This one is a fall theme. It's also about 8 inches square.

This one is 6.5 inches square. It is made up of neutrals to browns.

These are 8 inches square. Directions were anything but green!

These slab blocks are a blast! I got to play in my scrap bag and make something. The fun is that you can use any size scrap you like. You end up using pieces that you thought were too small. I guess the moral of the story is to save the scraps! You can make great blocks from them. 

I'm so happy I was asked to participate in this block swap. I'm planning on making a table runner with my blocks. I'm looking forward to more swaps!

    1. I had more fun than expected! I really love symmetry but tried to loosen up and become more unpredictable. So glad you liked them!
