stitch four 2 1/2" strips (width of fabric or whatever your scrap width is); cut into squares; turn a square a quarter turn; place squares right sides together and stitch all the way around all four sides (1/4" seam)

using a rotary cutter, cut the stitched square diagonally from corner to corner

open each section and press toward the longer strip (in this case, toward the blue and the stripped)

presto!  you have 4 small squares that can be arranged like this...

or like's an easy way to use short yardage for a scrappy quilt, pillow, apron, etc
