These are fast and fun to make! Kat said anything goes for color and fabric choices, so I had fun just pulling the strings out of my scrap basket and sewing away. They finish at 10 1/2 inches.
I also used some of the Autumn Jubilee blocks I made last week to sew a fall mini quilt.
After sewing together the four blocks, I added 1 1/2 inch borders in the background fabric, layered it with a fun backing, and quilted it using edge to edge wavy lines. The quilting reminds me of all the wind we've had here recently - which brought most of the leaves around here down into our yard! Lots of raking has been done here this week, too!
Since I don't have a mini quilt stand for displaying little projects like this, I pinned it up in the corner of our bedroom, right next to my antique chair that holds the pillow I made out of the same fall fabrics. I like it there!
That does leave one poor orphan maple leaf block still sitting on my cutting table. But I don't think it will be alone for long! I'm thinking it would be fun to make these blocks in all kinds of colors - my next Rainbow Scrap Challenge project, perhaps? Hmmm... So many ideas to consider!
