A quick and easy classic for today. This one uses lots of different colors, and is great for smaller sized scraps.
Start with at least 6 greens. I just happened to have a bag of 1.5 inch strips and so cut 6 rectangles that were 3.5 inches long. This would be a fun block for strings as well. Maybe I'll try that variation later. In addition to those, you will also need two large strips of background fabric 2 inches by 6.5 inches.
Sew the 3.5 inch strips together and press carefully. There are a lot of seams in this one and it is easy to get it a little wonky if you are overzealous with the iron.
Now sew the long strips of background fabric to either side and press away from the center. I could see a giant quilt with this block, arranged in a basket weave pattern. What a great scrap buster that would be!
