Another crossed block

Like the fully-crossed  block in the previous post, this is another block that uses the idea of making a block and slicing it across to insert strips.  This one simple inserts to strips going in the same direction, so it's even easier than the crossed one - no seam matching at all. The backgrounds in this piece are two rectangles pieced to make a square; the slashes are then made at a slight angle across the rectangle's join.  They are done one at a time, and at an angle to one another.  An excellent, quick way to use larger scraps.

What it uses: strips of any width. larger scraps for the rectangles
