fall, maple leaves
Judy and others have been posting maple leaf quilts. I have made two, this is the first, made about 8 years ago--one that got away without a label. The pattern was in American Patchwork and Quilting, I followed it closer than I do most patterns. I changed the orientation of the blocks to get a more diagonal feel. Note one of my signature ghost blocks--I love including a few low contrast blocks in a quilt.
Lots of thrift store shirts in this quilt!
The little leaves are 6 inches, the large ones 9 inches.
