I've had a thing for maple leaf quilts for quite awhile now.
I've even made a couple, Judy Martins' book, Cookie and Quilts.
But recently a more modern version has been popping up on Instagram and flickr.
I thought what a quick and fun quilt to make.
So I pulled out a stack of fabrics,
made a block -
but it was missing something - I wanted something more,
something different than all the others.
So my first thought was to make Mini log cabin blocks.
It started with this block, I liked the idea but wanted something else…...
So I started sewing random scraps together. Boy did this take time, would have been much easier and a lot faster if I made them from a solid piece of fabric.
But I do have to say the end results were worth it.
The blocks range in size from 3" to 12"
Finished size is 60" x 72"
I made all this blocks from the scrap bins in my sewing room
and it's sad to say I didn't even put a dent in them.
Now on to the quilting it.
I do all my quilting on my Janome MC 6600.
One of my favorite books on machine quilting is
