Use a smallish square as the center, once again the size is up to you.
Sew strips of fabric (I use scraps) to top and bottom of center. Press open with iron.
Sew strips to other sides of center, press open with iron.
Continue adding strips of fabric to sides, making sure to extend
beyond edges by 1/4" - notice how the
stripe fabric entends beyond the orange fabric.
As you sew on strips, trim as needed.
Continue sewing on strips until the muslin sqaure is completely covered.
On back side of square, cut ragged edges off using the
muslin square as a guide.
Finished square! So fun to use up scraps this way.
I made my square into a pillow...I continued on in the same manner
just using black to make the pillow bigger.
