Polka Dots and Lady Bugs

I did some thinking this week about what kind of multi-color maple leaf and nine patch I wanted to make for my April Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks, and it always helps to dig around in my stash while I think.

When I found these, I knew they would make some fun blocks!


It didn't take long to cut the pieces and layout one of each type of block.


This color combination was so much fun to play with that I knew right away I wasn't finished! So I added some HSTs to the mix.


How about a bow tie?


I just couldn't stop!


I think this will become a fun table topper - right now it's measuring about 18 x 18.  I'll finish it up after we get home from a quick weekend trip to visit our kids.

Happy Easter to all of you!  I'll be sharing at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday and at Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
