Strip and Slash
This is a Split 9-Patch project from Jackie Robinson, called Strip and Slash. This finished block is small, about 3.75 finished. But it sure uses up ANY fabric, lights and darks. I would do it again, but with larger strips, even though I know the larger strips would not blend so nicely. All the lights are sewn together into a rectangle and then cut diagonally, then the darks are sewn together into a rectangle and cut diagonally, then the two halves are sewn together, and all the seams match butt up perfectly.
There are 120 blocks in the above (unsewn!) project, with one left over. 8-) I sure hope I can get some of those seams together nicely! Despite all the various colors, it turned out a lovely steel gray-blue.
