Maple Leaf Blocks

Last night I went to a sew-in with the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild at the Quilting Loft, and got started on the large version of Falling Leaves. I got there a little after 5 p.m. and left around 9:00.

I had done all my cutting over the Christmas holidays, but when I sat down to start sewing I had a little trouble remembering exactly how I intended to use the pieces I had cut. (Some of the squares were cut larger to be sewn diagonally and cut to make the half-square triangle leaf point.) I messed up on the first couple of blocks, but then got it figured out.

The quilt will have Maple Leaf blocks in four different sizes — 3", 4-1/2", 6" and 9". I got all the two smaller sizes done.
