Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler - Plus

This is a simple variation of a nine patch. It seems "modern" to me.
From light orange background fabric cut:
4 - 3 inch square
4 rectangles 1 by 1.5
From a darker orange cut:
4 rectangles 1.5 by 2.5
From a contrasting or focus orange cut:
1 - 1.5 inch square.
Take one small rectangle of background orange and sew it to one end of each dark orange rectangle.  Press toward the dark fabric.
From this point you are just sewing a nine patch.  The large orange background squares form the four corners and the center square is the small contrasting orange square.  Make sure the background goes away from the center.
There it is, nice and simple.
