Autumn Leaves

My Yahoo group Small Quilt Talk is making Maple Leaf quilts this month. I thought you would like to see what some of the members did with their beautiful blocks.

 
Made by Bonnie G.
 
 
 
Bronwyn made two!

Karen's leaf blocks are mixed with signature blocks from members of the group.

Made by Kris

 
Robin's runner

 
Quilt made by Susan
 
All so creative and unique. It's not too late to make your own little leaf quilt. When Thanksgiving rolls around  you might be glad you did. Find the pattern for the little Maple Leaf block here.
 
 
Here's the one I made. I'm trying to get another one finished but not having too much luck so far. Just a little here and there. I thought I'd make it  with some appliqued leaves. Here's a peek -

All the quilts are so pretty!! That is such a neat idea to applique leafs onto your quilt. I can't wait to see your finished top. Karen/IL.

Everyone has done such a lovely job with their Maple Leaf blocks!!!! I treasure the quilt I made with members' blocks first time around, it's one of my favourites!!!

They are all beautiful. As Autumn is my favourite time of the year, (and even though it is Spring here in Australia) I might just have to sew up a mini maple Leaf quilt! Thank you for the pattern.

Beautiful quilts .I'm somewhat curious about those big leaves Kathleen.
BTW, thank you for the signature block it arrived in the mail Friday.

I love the Maple Leaf block so I am inspired by all the table runners, wall hangings, etc. your group made. Thanks so much.

I love all the use of the maple leaf blocks shown here. I recently incorporated maple leafs in a couple of my recently designed quilts -- one of which I am offering as a free pattern.

Kathleen, you are so clever! That leaf applique looks wonderful! Fall goes by so quickly, and it's such fun to have some fall projects to keep our fingers busy. Thanks for the inspiration.
