I finished this quilt up this week...its the "made fabric" method
that is used in the "15 minutes Play" book by 
Victoria Findlay Wolfe of BumblebeansInc.

block units from those slabs...heres a close up of one block below..
LOTS of little pieces...

In case you have ever wondered....

Why this blog is called
"Quilting with Calicos"

It isnt because I love calico fabrics although I 
do have a whole sack of those. Its because of my
beautiful Calico girls...from left to right...
