    Hmmm____ How am I going to make a purple maple leaf? For those of us planning to use this calendar quilt as a Christmas gift, any chance we could get November and December blocks at the same time so we have a little time to get it finished? Just something to consider.

    Make it a dk purple - we have leaves here that give that impression! Guess it is more of a reddish purple but kids say they are purple!

    Cajun's August Block

    Here is the block I choose to do for August! I'm a Carol Doak fan so I substituted one of her blocks for the one chosen.

    Hugs,
    Cajun

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.

    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!!

    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

    My Cat In Pumpkin PP Block

    Okay I finally got my Carol Doak Paper-Piecing Paper in and here is my block. The center part which is 3" x 3" was in two parts, a 1" x 3" and a 2" by 3"...so you can see what a trip dealing with those small, small pieces was. My scratch pad paper kept separating from the fabrics so I had to have good quality paper to do it.

    I added the black border and pumpkin fabric on my own. This pattern is for card inserts!

    Hugs,
    Cajun

    Cajunbear...love your block!
    I'm playing catchup...I decided to not do the pp block; instead I picked a block out of my calendar (365 blocks), it's called thunder & lightening...that's what we get here, usually, in Aug. So I thought it was very fitting. If you look closely at the blue sky fabric, it has metalic lightening coming out of it...perfect block for that fabric!

    WOW!! I guess you have really been playing catch up working on your 2012 Calendar theme blocks. I am so glad that you are getting caught up. That sky fabric with the silver lightening is fantastic. I love it, it makes your block really stand out nicely. Nice choice of block pattern. Thank you for sharing with all of us. We love Show & Tell, don't we?
