    Thank you both! Jeanie, I have to confess, the center isn't fuzzy cut, it just came out this way!
    Sulabug, I think she's hoping for a mouse block! That's the only way she can catch one

    Whew! Not my best work, but I am done and it is not Sept. yet! I only used 3 colors so mine turned out a little different - I just didn't have time to go to a LQS for another fabric that coordinated with what I had. My LQS is not so local... I may remake it when I get other fabrics.Click image for larger version.

    Linda..............your August 2012 BOM block looks great with just two color's. I wouldn't change it either. It is nice to have something different for a change. I love your nice warm color's & fabric's that you have used putting it together. Thank you for sharing with all of us today!!

    Thanks for all your kind comments! I think my block looks like some sort of American Indian symbol, but I can't place which one. My grandmother was Am. Indian - I wish I could have learned more about her culture before she passed. (I am the only one in the family that got all recessive gene traits from my father- I look Irish instead of Am. Indian - the rest of my family looks Indian!!! I was always so jealous!)
    Maybe I should do a quilt with Indian symbols in honor of my grandmother. I named my vintage Singer 201 after her...

    I didn't think it would look like August in purple (plus, I did not want to make another one), so here are my August flip-flops. The colors are off. It is purple, light green, and yellow.:

    Bibliostone: I love the sun in the center of your block! The flip-flops goes right alone with the theme of summer sun. Wonderful

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I love the sun fabric. If I had had enough of the sun fabric, I would have put some in the flip-flop block. Alas, all I have left are some scraps. Not enough to get four 2 inch blocks out of it.

    WOW!! What pretty blocks you have made this month. I love your Exploding Star, as it is so warm & welcoming looking. It really represents the Summer Sun that most of us are all having. Also your flip flop block is just darling, I love it too!! You always make such cute blocks. Thanks for sharing with all of us!!

    Hints, you ask? Hee-Hee..........well let me think a minute. I can tell you that the September block represents many of the fall color's & oh yes, it has some of our favorite HST blocks in it. Does this help any? September first is almost here ladies so put your thinking caps on!!
