Scrappy Strips Block for Ann

Ann requested a Scrappy Strip Block finishing 12″ square using a white background and brightly colored scraps.  She posted about the block here and wrote a detailed tutorial on her blog Brown Paws Quilting here.

I grabbed some scraps and made this block.

I almost took the easy way out and made a cross but wanted the challenge and inserted the second strip at an angle.  It looks nice and straight at this angle…

But what about from the other angle?  Success, I did keep the strip lined up fairly well.

Even though Ann requested two strips in each block, I had enough scraps sewn to make one additional strip so I inserted a single strip in a block and thought she could add in another strip.
