Too Easy!

I saw this mini tutorial on and it looked so easy I had to give it a try.
I cut 6 strips each of lights and darks, 9" x 2" (butterfly quilting used jelly roll strips).  Sew each group together to form 2 separate blocks.  I squared the blocks to 8 1/2".
Place your blocks on top of each other, right sides together.  Make sure one block is vertical and the other is horizontal.
Sew the two blocks together using 1/4" seam around the entire block.

Cut the block diagonally in both directions.
You end up with 4 HSTs.  Press open.

Wow!! What a great idea!  I love this quick and easy method!

It is really fun to see what creative people are doing, I have learned so much from wonderful ideas shared on blogs.
