Today is the Maple Leaf Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop. The Maple Leaf Quilt is part of their Classic and Vintage Quilt Series. The Maple Leaf is a classic block for a couple of reasons. The first is that it is a simple block to make, perfect for a beginner. Second, there’ so many design options with this block which makes it a great option for more experienced quilters.
For my Maple Leaf block I used some fabrics by April Rosenthal that I had in my stash. I really enjoyed putting the block together and it was simple and fast.
