Maple Leaf Redux

I posted a pattern for a Maple Leaf  block here a few years ago. Since a couple of you asked about the pattern again after seeing my blocks in the previous post, here it is - Maple Leaf block. The pieces go together pretty quickly and if you have some time coming up this weekend you might have fun making a few. It's an easy block and if you don't like scrappy then make it matchy in your favorite fall colors. I really enjoy making them scrappy and have lots more pieces cut from my scraps that are all ready to go. But I have enough blocks that I made a few years ago so I can also easily stitch some of them together.

Every time the weather gets a little cool I bring them out and get inspired again. 


There was even a maple leaf block swap in my small quilt group, not once but twice, so everyone got a pretty nice assortment.  I made several small quilts and gave them to friends.

Or, just take time to sit still and sew up a few leaves . . .

I really am enjoying your blog. So many fun things to see. But I have to tell you that every time I go to your site the Glenn Miller version of Sentimental Journey pops into my head. I love that era of music and to me your quilts fit right in.
