Design Wall Monday Feb 20th

Here is Slab quilt #2, laid out and ready to sew and become a top.  I am making many slab blocks and a few quilts. I think I will keep this one quilt for myself. I have made this quilt with 30 blocks. Slab quilt #1 has 24 blocks. I am now in the planning stages to make 4 slab quilts, 3 I will give to the CQA's Big Canadian Quilt Bee. Also I think my mom has started some slab blocks so I will have to quilt her quilt(s) too. I am not sure how many she will make. 

I have added this post to Judy's Design wall Monday.

So I am also still making blocks for quilts 3 and 4. I am using 24 blocks per quilt. I have my scraps sorted and plan to use 8 colours so I need 3 blocks per colour. Here are 6 more blue blocks for the 3rd and 4th quilt.

We are using at least one Canadian fabric in the blocks, to celebrate Canada's Birthday this year 150 years young. I have both a cream and turquoise maple leave fabric in this block. I love this line of fabric. I am sure I will have to buy more of it. 

Happy Family Day
