I took inspiration from my guild's square and rectangle scrap challenge to design this quilt. I began with a tiny thumbnail sketch and cut all of my green scraps into the largest squares I could. Then I used my design wall to plan the layout of my first slab and filled in around my squares. After the first slab I imposed some additional rules on myself to create similar, but not identical, slabs. This 61.5" x 66.5" quilt made a big dent in my green scraps and used up the majority of my neutral scraps. I'm submitting it for the Just the Top category of the Pantone Quilt Challenge hosted by Bryan House Quilts and No Hats in the house. You can see a bit more of my process in my original post.

I'll begin teaching this technique in workshops this Fall.

I'm linking up to the Just the Tops Pantone Quilt Challenge 2017 Linky Party.

I had to work ahead this week so I could post a few blocks from Disneyland this week. I've finished all the cross blocks now, and I'm working on the blocks featuring rectangles. I think my favorite block this week is Block 21, both since it was fast to complete the day after vacation (while three of us had a stomach bug!) and because I could sneak in a bit of my single charm square of feather fabric. I think Block 17 came out a little wonky, but I'm not sweating it in general and I think my choice of the purple print really helps mask the wonkiness. ;-)

I've completed another week of blocks for the Tula Pink City Sampler quilt along hosted on Instagram by Angie of Gnome Angel. Last week I showed you my first seven blocks. Next week I'll be moving into the next section of the book, rectangles, but here are seven more cross blocks for week two!
