To start - You will need some white yardage and scraps sorted by color. Shown is my red pile, but you will need a pile of red, pink, purple, blue, aqua, green, yellow, and orange :) We'll start by cutting squares from our yardage. And now you are ready to start building some scrappy blocks. Now time to start adding. Once again, create a new straight line and add a new piece. Also remember, don't bother trimming pieces as soon as you have added them. And lastly, if you find you have a long line you want to add to but want to keep the scrappy look, you can always sew 2 scraps together first and then add it to the straight line created. Just keep making straight lines and adding until you have at least a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" squares. Once your block is large enough, cut a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square from it.
