It is Fall. Or if you want to be technical, today is the day when the ecliptic intersects the celestial equator, the sun having a southerly motion in the northern hemisphere.
I made two 4-inch blocks celebrating this special day.
There isn’t a sign of fall around here. The trees are still green and the temperature is around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Traditional (9-patch) maple leaf blocks always make me feel fall has arrived. I modified the traditional block for paper piecing.
