I'm entering the modern maple mini quilt I completed this fall & have hanging on my wall.
I have to tell you here at the beginning that I am rather new to quilting, I've only made a few mini's & baby size quilts so far. I love the feeling of satisfaction after one is finished!!
Anyway, I was just introduced to this block pattern a few weeks ago when I saw a few of them popping up over on Flickr. I was so intrigued I had to make a few myself!!:)
Since fall was already half over I knew I wouldn't have time to make a whole quilt so I just made up four blocks & sewed them together to make a mini quilt.
I used essex linen for the back ground & a red FMF print, Sandy Garvis yellow print, brown Lizzie House print & a Micheal Miller print. I also used a bit of text print in the background of the MM print for a bit of visual interest.
Again I used two different binding scraps I had & love the other extra bit of interest it added!
Here's a detail shot of the quilt where you can really see the hand quilting & the texture it brings!
