It turns out my plan of easing up on myself has worked out well. Last Saturday I made 4 blocks and then on Sunday I decided to make 4 more. Since this weekend is going to be another busy one I'm saving 4 of the blocks for next weekend.
In the book Honeycomb is shown as a two color block. One of the members of the Yahoo Farmer's Wife group posted pictures last week of this block made with four colors. I loved how vibrant it made the block and decided to do a similar thing for my block.
I really love the Postage Stamp block. I don't know if I'll ever have the patience to cut enough pieces for an entire quilt with these 1" squares, but this block is cute enough to have me thinking about it.

Rainbow Flowers is another one that has me thinking of possiblities. Not sure what's going to happen with this block either, but I've already started playing with it in EQ7.

After finishing Steps to the Alter (I'll share that one next week) I realized I messed up on my Strawberry Basket block. When I was sewing it I was one light grey square short. I should have double checked if I really needed another light grey square, but instead I blindly cut on. The block looks okay, but the basket is lost without the dark grey triangle underneath all of the squares.
