Rainbow Scrap Sampler - Bento Box

This block is based on a 4 by 4 grid.  It uses 2 inch strips.
From the dark fabric cut one 2 inch square, one 2 by 3.5 inch rectangle and one 2 by 5 inch rectangle.
From the light fabric cut one 2 inch square, one 2 by 3.5 inch rectangle, one 2 by 5 inch rectangle and one 2 by 6.5 inch rectangle.
Start piecing from the bottom left corner, first sewing the two squares together and pressing toward the dar.
Next add the light colored 2 by 3.5 inch rectangle and press toward the left.  Add the dark green 2 by 3.5 inch rectangle to the top followed by the larger green rectangle.  Repeat one more round with the light green rectangles.
Your finished block will be 6.5 inches.  Tada!

Yeah, a nice easy start to green. I'll have to finish the purple before I start the green.

I need to finish the purple before I can start on green. I'm looking forward to seeing what green scraps are lurking in the scrap drawer.
