Not Much to Show - Just Two Small Blocks

Boy, this weekend went by quickly! The weather was good - nice and sunny! We had Easter dinner at our house. I was ordered by my kids not to buy any chocolate this year, so I didn't. But it really felt as if something was missing!

The Friday Block Party was called "Bouncing Betty". I made the block in the bottom right corner first. Then Kathryn posted a quick way of doing the corner blocks which have the large triangles in them. I just had to try the block again! The top left block is a result of that method. It went together very quickly. I just wish I had made the block in more colours, kind of like the first one, to look more like coloured Easter eggs! The blocks are only 8 inches square. Right now they are orphans. I might make some other 8-in. blocks in the future to go with them. But for now this is all I could put together on this long, but very busy weekend!

I like the both and it is amazing to me each time how the different colors bring a different effect.
