Modern Maples

Despite having other things I should be working on, this week I have been bitten by the Modern Maple bug.  And I've been having so much fun with these blocks that I'm flying through them!





I'm going for a bright fall look (despite it being summer).  I'm in love with the orange, purple, and pink color combo in particular!  

There is a smorgasbord of fabric lines in here: Hope Valley, Chicopee, Flea Market Fancy, Aviary, Architextures, Madrona Road, Mama Said Sew, Kona Solid... and a few more which I cannot recollect.

I cannot wait to get this one finished!

    1. Thanks! I recently moved back east from living in Colorado for the past 7 years, and the fall colors are what I am most looking forward to-- I missed them so much!

    1. Luckily I have selvage on that fabric! It's a Quilting Treasures fabric called Tidings of Great Joy. I got it at a small shop in Fort Collins, CO some time ago. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. I always think I should sew a season ahead so that the quilt is done when it finally arrives. Love the traditional pattern with modern fabrics.
