    Cajun............WOW!! I love your Carol Doak's block that you just made for your August 2012 BOM block. Like you, I am a big fan of her paper pieced pattern's. Your color's are terrific & your work is really great. I hope you are getting ready for the September block, as I will be posting it after midnight tonight!! Thank you for sharing with all of us.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Now bibliostone...............what makes you think that the September block is going to be a Maple Leaf? It could also be an Oak Leaf or maybe a house block too. Whatever the choice is, I think purple will be the best color ever for it!! I will be posting the new pattern tonight after midnight, my time. Hope you enjoy it!!

    Cajun, that's a gorgeous block!
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    I am going to have to wait until my Carol Doak paper-piecing paper arrives to do that Cat in Pumpkin card block. My fabric tears from the tracing paper I've been using.. this block is like 3" x 3" when finish so there are tiny piecings!

    Hugs,
    Cajun
