Ok so for this you will need:
Background fabric, cut to the size you want your block to be (mine is 12.5")
Variety of scraps in colours of your choice, width depends on the size you want your cross to be, mine were approx 3" wide
Firstly sew you scraps together in any order that you want (sew with a 1/4" seam throughout), you want to end up with 2 scrappy strips, each measuring a few inches longer than your desired block size (mine measured about 16")
Nice and simple but looks great.
This block can be done with so many variations, you can keep adding strips and build it up further
Or how cool would it be to do a giant version of this as a quilt instead of individual quilt blocks
