Maple Leaf Block - Classic and Vintage Series

Hi Peeps!

Yes it's me again...third time in one week has got to be a record for the One Wee Bird blog posts...well at least for a really long time LOL

The Fat Quarter Shop has been reviving some of their older posts from their Classic and Vintage Series and this is one of them.

The Maple Leaf Quilt Block would you believe yet another quilt block I have never made? This is why I love it when they invite me to do these things because it's quite often something I've never tried before!


I googled the block and there are some gorgeous quilts out there, but mostly in the autumn colours and a few in scrappy rainbow...I wanted to do something lighter and more Spring - like?

As I can never make one of any block I'm trying out I made 4......then got stuck.....until I tried this layout, mmmm I like I have an idea and I'm going to put pen to paper and see if I can come up with a quilt plan?

Watch this space....and if you have any ideas feel free to share them this way xx

Talk soon Peeps!


  1. Years ago I made an autumn colored leaf quilt, with sashing between them. I loved it! The cornerstones added another color and my sis and her hubby put it on their bed every fall. Your spring green will be beautiful as well.

  2. wonderful blocks, love the fresh colors of spring, I have started the same idea and wanted to show you but can't figure out how to put a photo in a comment. LOL Happy New Year and Happy Sewing from Iowa
