Design Wall Feb 6

I declared this past weekend a stay at home Retreat of Quilting. It all started on Friday night, I got sewing more slab blocks. Saturday I slept in but spent the day in my sewing room. Sunday the same thing, lots of sewing got done. 

Black slab blocks. I am working my way through my boxes of colour sorted scraps. I am planning on sending a quilt for Canada's Big Quilt Bee. If you want to make some here is the Slab pattern. The blocks are 12 1/2" and they ask that we have a piece of Canada fabric. I have been using this White with Red maple leaves, I am running out. 

Can you see the other Canadian fabric? is is black with cream maple leaves. I picked it up at retreat, someone else scrap, just one strip. Love my paw prints too. 

I just kept sewing all weekend long. I got 6 blocks done in Yellow. Yellow is not really a favorite colour for me but I have collected a few cute yellow fabrics. Like the big dots that go to Red, or the the plaid yellow. 

I have decided if I make 6 blocks of each colour that will add up to 48 blocks and I can make 2 quilts. I will have some extra green blocks. 

Orange got done too. Can you see I added in a bit of Red maple leave fabric in there? 

I have added this post to Design Wall Monday
