Just love this one. I think the simple black binding just finishes it off nicely. Hopefully the client who ordered this will love it too.
So last night, I was looking through some quilt patterns and came across this modern maple leaf block quilt called Modern Maples by Amanda Woodward-Jennings. I thought it may be fun to make a maple leaf block every once in a while to break up the time I spend while making a quilt. And then eventually I would have all the blocks ready to go. I love Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery BOM quilt so I figured why not make my own block every once in a while. The only issue that I found with this pattern is that the 5 inch squares that are made into HSTs need to be trimmed to 4.5" before putting the block together. The instructions do not mention to trim to 4.5" square, instead the instructions make it sound as if they should be trimmed to 4". They are suppose to be 4" square when the whole maple leaf block is complete. Just a heads up because if you trim those squares to 4", every other square will need to be trimmed to 4" to complete the block. And you will have a smaller maple leaf block.
Here is my first block of many :)
