Autumn Quilt Panel...

A gorgeous autumn quilt panel... 

These panels are so beautiful

and hard to resist when you see them

at the quilt shops...

especially when you already have a big stash

of landscape fabrics in your cupboard at home

that will compliment them:

I cut up a bunch of squares from the

landscape fabrics and started to

build maple leaf blocks...

This is an excellent quilt block reference...

Quick & Easy Block Tool

Directions for quilt blocks in 5 sizes !

It feels good to be using up some

of these stash fabrics !

Here come the leaf blocks:

Here is a maple leaf block on the design board

ready to be stitched together...

Here is is all stitched together...

I put a few of them up on the design wall

to see if they play well with the panel:

The yellow background fabric in the leaf blocks

is a good contrast with the 

dark outer edges of the panel.

I have had this beautiful leaf fabric forever

and I am hoping to use it somewhere in this quilt.

I have about 18 maple leaf blocks

 complete and need 6 more...

I will stitch a few more together, as time allows,

in between checking on the mama cows

and newborn calves.
