another maple leaf

e

This was my second maple leaf--I had most of the blocks made and searched for the best orange for the setting strips and border. I found this beautiful Princess Mirah batik when I was on jury duty in the Land Beyond Ohare (what we Chicago types call where I tend to get lost),
It is being held by a nice young man from New Zealand who is visiting with my nephew. They teach English in Korea and are watching Korean soap operas on tv this morning before heading downtown.

It would be impossible to pick out a favourite. Please keep 'em coming to inspire us all.

The batik is beautiful...really sets off the blocks. One of my first quilts was a maple leaf - originally I'm from New England so it remains a favorite!
