Get Creative with Fabric Choices and Vary the Personality of These Easy Blocks!
Whether you want to make a large quilt or a small one, Maple Leaf Blocks are always in style. There are many ways to set these easy-to-make blocks. Their personalities will vary depending on the fabrics used and the sashing or other setting you choose.
We especially like what Kathleen Tracy at A Sentimental Quilter does with these versatile blocks. She specializes in small quilts with an antique look. Yet, her quilts often include a brighter fabric or two to spark the look of the toned down fabrics she prefers. Here are a few of her Maple Leaf Blocks.
Katherine put three blocks together into a charming table runner.
While we do not have the table runner pattern, it would not be hard to fashion one yourself from finished Maple Leaf Blocks.
Katherine’s online quilting group shares some of their finished projects here, giving you several ideas of how to incorporate these blocks into little quilts.
You might also consider making coasters from individual blocks as hostess gifts.
Whatever you choose to do with your finished Maple Leaf Blocks, choose fabrics that suit you and make them uniquely yours!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
