It’s funny how one lone, but not forgotten, quilt block can lead to a pillow and even a big quilt! For last week’s Finish it Friday, I took my one modern maples block and made it into a Fall pillow. Between the start of football season and the upcoming release of Fall coffee concoctions, I wanted to have a fresh seasonal addition to the house.
Well… that pillow reignited my desire for a Fall quilt. I kept envisioning watching football and drinking pumpkin spice coffee under a ginormous comfy quilt. (Okay, only for morning games. For afternoon games, I think of boneless buffalo strips…) The tutorial for Modern Maples can be found here but I wanted my blocks to be my much much bigger. Apparently, I was not the only one and the fantastic Darcy (also known as Modern Cozy!) figured out the dimensions for a 30″ finished block. Thank you, Darcy.
Then this Lizzy House designed combination got thrown in the mix:
Ignore the lack of ironing. My cat decided to make a cat bed of my blocks RIGHT before picture time…
Along with one of my favorite fabrics designed by Anna Maria Horner from her Innocent Crush line:
There will be more but I’m waiting on background fabric. I can’t wait to see how this quilt ends up. Has one project ever led you to another one?
