Birthday Blocks

I belong to a Yahoo birthday group where once a month we make a block for the birthday girl.
This month we happen to have 2 girls so I decided I might as well look over their fabric that they sent in along with their block of choice.... One block went together lickety split....One, gave me fits....Can you tell which is which?

Hey Peg, is this a trick question? I'm thinking the block on top looks simpler with nothing but squares and rectangles in a layout of design and color that's balanced. The bottom one is scrappy and the design appears more complicated, BUT on close inspection it's components are only squares and half-square triangles. So which was harder? I vote for the top one. Be sure to let us know!

I think the top one, too........but the end result looks good for both, so I find it hard to believe that you had trouble with either of them!

They look good, Peggy! I put pictures of mine on the group page. They were both fiddly to do, but I definitely think the triangles were the bigger PITA...

Urgh, I wouldn't want to make that second one! They both turned out very pretty, though! : )
