Description


This is my start on a Modern Maples Mini. The fabrics are Moonlight Blooms from Connecting Threads.
 
The large quilt is great and I may tackle it someday soon, but I am grateful that +Amanda put up the information to make a mini as I wanted to do something with this month's project and this was just right, for now! Thanks Amanda  ... it made the process a lot easier, not having to do the legwork.
 
I'm leaning towards a small border...we'll see -going to let it sit for a day or so while I think on it;)))
 
Update- 7/10- Well that was a fast stew- looked at it last night and it just said- Green- now!- what else was there to do but do it!  Now on to the quilting:) House guest and  my son arrive next week so I am endeavoring to get as much done on my project list before life happens:)
 
Update:-7/10 Finis- I did the quilting this afternoon, and finished it this evening- this was definitely a fast finish for me, but since I have only a few days before things get a bit busy here, I decided it was now or never. This was a really fun project- and I got to try another form of FMQ-ing- up til now I have only done wavy lines in varying widths etc...but I decided to follow the design in the original and I did a proper stipple- it's a first try but I will definitely do it a lot more now on other projects.  I did stitch in the ditch first around all the blocks and that helped a lot to avoid any puckering on the back.
 
I love the pattern- I would definitely do this project again - both as a topper and someday, a full sized quilt.

Lovely, lovely! The colors are so pretty in this one!

Mymble

Thanks Wendy- I saw this fabric a few months ago and just bought it on impulse (like THAT never happens ;) thinking it might work for this- glad I did as it's almost gone at Connecting Threads!

True

Oh I love your fabric choices!

Mymble

True Thanks Mary!

Rebecca

So pretty! I love that purple leaf in there.

Mymble

Rebecca Thanks Rebecca- they are lovely fabrics and my photos don't do them justice - the colors really glow!

Quilt455

You picked such beautiful fabrics for the blocks. It really say Fall. I just love the purple block you did.

Rebecca

Mymble The fabrics do look perfect! Do you have enough to do a full size quilt in them later on?

Amanda

I love how this turned out - and I'm glad the block resizing information helped!

Mymble

Quilt455 Thanks so much- that purple is really gorgeous in person too:)

Mymble

Rebecca Thanks Rebecca-I wish so- I only bought a few charm packs and strips as I was thinking table topper at the time- of course now that I've worked with the pattern- very fun, yes, this line would make a gorgeous full sized version. Perhaps Connecting Threads will reissue it- it seemed to go fairly quickly:(

Mymble

Amanda Thanks Amanda- yes, now I want to make a few more and am thinking perhaps use your size blocks but add a few more to get a slightly bigger version- do have enough of the fabric for that:)- this project definitely hooked me:)

Rebecca

Mymble Ah bummer! I'll keep my fingers crossed for a reissue because I want to see you make this in full size smile

Mymble

Rebecca Thanks- we will hope:)- guess this means I'll have to keep close tabs on Connecting threads- ah such trials we fabric lovers must go through:(((( (ahem!)

Rebecca

Mymble Yes, such a rough task keeping an eye on CT every week or so....

Skynme

Mymble
