    Here's mine. I'm not too happy with the fabric I used but I don't have fall colors so this is the best I could do. I found a design in EQ 5 and I thought I try this.

    Anael: I like your block. Growing up, many places I lived Sept was still summer weather. So, it looks like sunflowers to me, are just like my memories. It was in September we would be cutting our sunflowers for their seeds.

    Anael.........You should be extremely happy with the fabric that you used to make your September Maple Leaf block, for the 2012 BOM theme!! I love it & it looks so pretty & of course who doesn't love Sun flowers? You have done a great job. Thank you so much for sharing your picture with all of us. I am enjoying seeing all of the September blocks so far & hope to see many more!! Keep up the great work everyone.

    Thank You Debbie. I enjoyed making this Maple leaf block & using some funky colors to border it with. My block makes me smile too!!

    I really like this block. We live in the country and everywhere we look now the Sunflowers are out, they grow along our highway. I told dh today I want to go cut some for my porch. And I think your block looks like a tulip... So the mauve fabric is perfect for that block.

    Here are my blocks for September.

    This fabric does have purple in it although it looks kind of pink in this picture:

    For my second block, I did not do a maple leaf block. In central Ohio, fall means Ohio State Buckeyes' football. So I used buckeye & buckeye leaf fabric with a red block O for September. Might change my mind and so something else.

    I am fond of maple leaves though. Here is a lap size quilt top I've made for myself that I call "Falling Leaves". Just needs quilted.

    Thank you all for your lovely comments on my block. It made me feel a whole lot better about what I've made!

    Bibliostone, I love your September blocks! The fabrics are beautiful, specially the background fabric in the O block. Your Falling Leaves is gorgeous, the colors are so warm, you should take your time to finish it.

    bibliostone..............Your blocks for September turned out really nice. Your Maple Leaf is very pretty & the fabric color's are so beautiful. I also love your Ohio block too. It looks like you did some thinking on this one & I am sure it will be loved in your quilt. Last, but not least, I just love your Falling Leave's lap quilt top. I can hardly wait to see it again after you get it quilted & finished. Please share pictures will all of us when you are done with it. Thank you for sharing today.

    WOW!! Thank you so much for posting both sets of your 2012 Calendar theme blocks for all of us to see. They all go together so well. Keep up the good work, as we can't wait to see them all finished at the end of the year.

    I am so glad that you are sharing your Maple Leaf quilt with all of us today. It is so gorgeous & the color's all play together so well. I love the little maple leaf blocks within your larger blocks. What a great pattern. Wonderful idea's for all of us to keep in mind.

    Linda..........What a Gorgeous Maple Leaf block!! Where did you ever find your fabric with the leaf veins in it? It is so pretty & I love the border that you put around it. Very nice & Fallish for sure. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

    Thanks Sulabug and JeanieG! I purchased the leaf fabric from a small quilt shop in Columbus, Ohio about 5 years ago. I intended to do an art quilt with it, but it never happened. It has been in my stash ever since waiting for the perfect project! The green border I bought this year at the Cincinnati Quilt Show.

    My Sept block is finished. Can you tell the leaf fabric is actually feathers? Also, my stem came out a bit thin, but at least it still looks like a leaf!

    Pat H............OMGoodness, your September Maple Leaf block is absolutely gorgeous!! The feather fabric just makes it stand out. I love all of the color's in your leaf fabric & the border's that you chose to add to it. Very nice work. I hope you continue to make some of the rest of the 2012 BOM blocks with all of us. We are glad to have you join in. Thank you for sharing today, as usual we just "LOVE SHOW & TELL"!!
