Any guesses how I'm keeping busy this week?
Modern Maple Blocks have taken center stage this week as you're about to see.
There's 12" blocks...
Block #8 and
a couple more 9" blocks...
and Block #10.
Then the first 6" block (more are waiting to be stitched).
It's not just the chance to play with seasonal colour that has me excited about this project, but also the chance to change the block size. I've made blocks in 3 sizes to add more interest to my final layout and to give me the chance to use fabrics from my scrap bins. Win, win!

In between sewing those leaf blocks, there's been some more granny square blocks. Slowly, but surely I'll end up with my king size granny square quilt (although it doesn't look like it will be finished in time for quarter 3 of the FAL with Leanne. So you know it will be added to my list for the 4th quarter ;o).
Did you know about the Flickr group Falling for Modern Maples?
Not only will you see more blocks, there's some finished quilts, too.
With any luck, I'll have a few more blocks finished before the end of the day. ;o)
It's Wednesday, so time to link up with some Canadian friends at the Needle and Thread Network.
