Maple Leaf Quilt Pattern

Autumn Leaves Quilt Pattern

Janet Wickell
The Autumn Leaves quilt pattern is designed with 14" square blocks with a small maple leaf unit at each corner. Leaves are separated by sashing, and a square sits at the block's center. Snowball quilt blocks rest between the maple leaf blocks, where they link to create diagonal movement across the surface of the quilt.

This quilt pattern is perfect for a fall theme, but would be a nice match for other colors, or even sewn as a scrap quilt.

Finished block size: 14" x 14"

Quilt size: 82" x 110"

All blocks are quick pieced.
