I haven't made a dolly quilt for a while and the other day I was feeling a bit distracted and needed a break from my stitching on The Word bom so I looked up Kathleen Tracey's blog to see what the small quilt of the month is.
This month it is Maple Leaf block and Kathleen gives suggestions for different layouts.
It seems funny working on an Autumn project when we are heading into Summer but I gathered together some browns, greens, and blacks and started planning what I would do.
I liked the idea of having different coloured 'leaves' rather than all the same and I also thought a small table runner would be better than a quilt. Kathleen has a sample of a tablerunner with eight blocks but I decided that I would make mine with six blocks and add 1" sashings between them.
Now I just have to work out a layout and choose sashings and borders.
That's my plan for the weekend anyway.
Until next time
