Modern Maples Update

Many of you have made such nice comments about the modern maples fabric pull from the other day (it was also in my blog hop post). This week I carved out some time from classroom packing and end of year activities to sew up some modern maple blocks. Once again I used my 500 Quilt Blocks books :) 


The blocks are a simple 9 patch with some HST, super easy and super quick. Here are some of the blocks completed, and laid out (of course, these are my favorites from the stack)





The goal is to get this one finished tomorrow.  Although, I am feeling the need to veg out in front of some mindless television.  It's a shame to work hard on the first day of summer! 

Sew long for now, 
Patch & Chels

  1. I just ordered the book (because you love it) and I can already tell I'm going to as well. It's a perfect size and I love how the info is organized

  2. They are way, way, way more modern and bright than my dull old maple leaves! I love them!

  5. Pretty! Love your colour choices and low volumes are my fave. I especially like the white/grey hand drawn heart print you have used - haven't seen that one before.

  6. The blocks look great! I look forward to seeing the pieced top. I hope you enjoy the process (and take as many breaks as you need)! Yay summer!

  7. Beautiful blocks! My mom has asked me to make her a fall-themed table runner and I just might have to use come of these leaves :)

  9. OOOOO pretty! Some of those prints are in my Sawtooth stars, but I don't have enough of the quiet greys and light prints to do that kind of background. I really need to start collecting those.... sigh.

  11. I saw that 500 quilt blocks book ages but thought "pfft, I have the internet; I don't need a book". Of course now I wish I bought it :D Loving your maple leaves and your fabric choices!
