How to use fabric scraps to make fun blocks

Turnabout square in a square is a square with some strips stitched around.

My starting squares are the same size and so are my strips. But if you wanted to go really funky you can start with different size squares and strips.

The double hourglass is a scrap buster. Just mix and match fabric strips as demonstrated on video and make a great scrap quilt.

You can use wider strips if you prefer.
