Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop

Today is my day for the Leafs me Happy Blog hop.
I am really into batik fabrics right now and I knew they would make the perfect leaf block.

I shall name this one "Leaf's Sun"
Heh, I'm no good at catchy pun titles and the only thing coming to mind right now is Leaf Ericsson.
Doesn't have anything to do with leaves, but it sounds good.

I incorporated two different pattern designs for this block:
The corners of Bonnie Hunter's Spider blocks and a pieced maple leaf block I found here.  
The leaf pattern was for a 15.5 inch block, so I had to re-size it to fit in a 8.5 inch square.


I didn't have time to make a whole set of blocks, but I played around with one block in my computer and came up with what could be a finished project in my near future.  I was also anxious to see how the spider sections would come together. 




Be sure to check out all the other great leaf blocks today.
You can see them all by following the links below.
