Maple Leaf Quilt Block - A FQS Quilt Along

Happy Fall, ya'll!!!

I'm so happy that it finally feels like Fall here in the Carolinas. Summer felt like it lasted forever, then we had hurricane weather, and now, finally, the leaves are turning and there is a chill in the air. Of course, that means there will be lots and lots of leaves to pick up! That's not so fun but today I want to share with you my favorite kind of Fall leaf (the fabric kind)!

The Maple Leaf quilt block!

There are lots of leaf block patterns out there but this one from the Fat Quarter Shop (FQS) is a fun, scrappy take on the block. The pattern is part of the FQS #classicandvintage series where they take classic patterns that we all know and love and remix them in fresh ways. Even though I only made one block, I love the look of the entire quilt.

This image is a mock up of the quilt from the FQS website. You can really start to see the scrappiness of the blocks come through in the whole quilt. Fat Quarter Shop offers the pattern for this quilt on their website. They also offer a quilt kit if you want to make one that looks just the image above! (Disclaimer: I did not receive any compensation for making this quilt block or for writing this post.)


Well friends, it's time for me to go work on other sewing projects. I'll leave you with the current view from my sewing room. 


Until next time!
