Scattered Leaves

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me,

fluttering from the autumn tree."

- Emily Bronte

We have been having the most beautiful autumn so far. The weather has been relatively nice with the leaves on the trees falling at a rapid rate.

I had a bundle of fall fabrics which have colours that I am not normally drawn to. I was surprised when I found these among my stash and I think I found the perfect project for them - Modern Maple quilt. I bought this bundle quite a while back from Connecting Threads. 

I found the Modern Maple quilt here and used this tutorial for making the blocks from Nicole at Modern Handcraft Blog here. Not difficult but just nice to have some tips to help you accomplish your goal.

I hit upon an idea awhile back to buy scrap bookers storage containers. You can see one of them with my finished leaves on the table. They were on sale really cheap a couple of weeks ago at Michaels so bought a couple to separate and keep straight all my in-progress projects together. They are the perfect size and hold a fair bit.

I'm sorry but I can't resist showing you some sunset pictures from the other evening.

The colours were amazing. This one was particularly beautiful with it's warm colours. It was almost like being wrapped up in a quilt.

The glow was amazing.

I'm not sure it can get any better. Possibly the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen.

Have a great week!




  1. Hi Shauma. Yes that is a beautiful sky. The weather has been great here too. I picked the last of my raspberries on Thanksgiving! Looking forward to next year already ; )

  2. Good to celebrate this glorious weather! Good to celebrate the beauty surrounding us! Your blocks will always take you back to that happiness. Thank you for sharing!
