The color in January was purple.
The February color is aqua.
I start with 2" squares, and the finished block size is 9".
A few years ago I was trimming red scraps into usable squares. What to do with the leftover bits of fabrics that were too small for squares but too large for the wastebasket? I made slab blocks!
I decided to make more slab blocks each month in the chosen color.
I simply sew together the scraps until the slab measures between 6 and 8 inches square. The backside of the slab shows many seams, making the blocks thick and heavy.
Eventually I will come up with a plan for the slabs, but until then I will keep making them!
