Rebecca's Bouncing Betty

This is such a cute little block!  But do you know where the name comes from?

  "

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term Bouncing Betty originally gained widespread use as the Allied soldier's nickname for the S-mine, an especially lethal, German, World War 2, Bounding mine."

I like the blue fabric that looks like it has Queen Anne Lace on it in the blue triangles.
