I took my basic idea from Play Craft’s Broken Herringbone tutorial.
I simplified it to one 2.5 inches wide green strip with a 1 inch wide red strip. Then as the block grew I added 3 inches wide white strip to the ends at a 45 degree angle.
This turned out a little more abstract than I had envisioned, but it is growing on me. I think this is because of the 45 degree angle with the white. I think had I just sewn it without the angle it would have turned out more tree like.
