Making a "Slab" block

In an earlier post, I talked about having had the privilege of designing a "Bee" for The Canadian Quilter's Association to use in promoting The Big Quilt Bee ( an initiative with a goal of creating 1,000 quilts for kids at Ronald MacDonald Houses across Canada)

The quilts will be made up of slab blocks.....having never made one myself, I thought I should give it a go.  oh my.....they are quick and fun to do....and yes...perhaps even a little addictive as well.

I decided to document the process of one of them and create a short video showing just how quick, fun and easy these block are to it is a great way to use up bits and pieces in your stash!

Slab Blocks...who knew?! This looks like a wonderful way to use bits and pieces of favorite fabrics. Thank you very much for showing a video of your techniques. It is always helpful for me to see something being done and not just read how to do it. Falling into Autumn Bliss...
