Blog Block #2 - Betty's Delight

Blog Block #2   Betty's Delight

I've liked this simple block pattern for a long time.  I didn't know the name of the block, so I looked around and the only name I found was Betty's Delight.  I'm sure it also has some other names - send me a post if you know this block by another name.

I made the block using a simple paper pieced pattern.  It takes two patterns to make one block.  Each block only uses two fabrics.  My block is a three inch finished square.

I had a small sampling of Island Batik fabrics that I loved, and thought I'd see how many blocks I could make out of them. 
Here is my finished mini quilt.  
Aren't the colors lovely!
