August  - BOM #4 

This "Crow's Foot" block is listed in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns as block #1273 and shown under several different names. "Crow's Foot" was early used for it in 1931 and I liked it best as a name here. (Other names include: "Bright Star", "Maple Leaf", "Hummingbird" and "Rosebud".  "Crow's Foot" was applied as a name by the Rural New Yorker in 1931.
