FALLING LEAVES IN SUMMER???


The raffle quilt for the Assiniboine Circle Quilter's quilt show is off my design wall and at the longarmer's to be quilted. Thousands of squares were cut out of fabrics donated by our guild's members. Each member received a kit to make a 10" maple leaf block, an angel appliqued the stems down, then my friend and I had a blast arranging them on my design wall (along with an additional 1500 or so 2 1/2" squares). I think everyone is pleased with the result.

Now that my design wall is free again I can start quilting for myself. I just don't know what to do first!!

Happy Stitching

ps the show is on Sunday, September 22 2013 from 11 to 4:30. It is held at the St. Francois Xavier Community Club, which is about 15 minutes west of Winnipeg, Manitoba

The lady that won this showed it to me and I absolutely love the quilt. I would like to make this for my husbands 60th birthday. He retired from veterans affairs canada after 30 yrs service and I thin the maple leaf would be an excellent choice for the focus. I have been looking for a design for the quilt and yours was by far the best I have seen. Do you have a pattern for this and if so where could I purchase one.

Dodie - I see you posted awhile ago - but I was looking around at "maple Leaf" quilts and found this site (which has LOTS of free patterns)at:
http://carterquilter.wordpress.com/
and if you look under the list to the left side of the page and go to the "Scrappy Maple Leaf Quilt" it is similar and with some changes it could become this "Autumn Spendor" quilt as the block and border is done the same.
