Modern Maples…jumbo sized! {w.i.p.}

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.

Orange Maple

It started with this orange block made with Timeless Treasures Sketch in Latte and a Juliana Horner print I bought at Jo’Ann’s.

Then this Lizzy House designed combination got thrown in the mix:

Green Maple

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:

Red Maple

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?

Linking up with Lee of Freshly Pieced for W.I.P. Wednesdays!
