Maple Leaf Log Cabin is one of the first quilts I designed and published the pattern to. It was before I discovered modern quilting, so it is very traditional, but perfect for fall.
But we just gave the quilt an update using modern fabrics and it looks fantastic. I just love how it turned out in Summer’s End from FIGO, which just goes to show you that fabric choice can change the entire look of a quilt, bringing it from very traditional to modern.
The quilt combines the maple leaf and log cabin blocks, then sets it in a barn raising setting to create beautiful contrast that keeps your eye moving around the quilt.
In today’s video you’ll learn how to make half square triangles from squares, how to cut log cabin strips on the length of fabric using the Marti Michell method so they don’t stretch, and how to lay everything out so your blocks look scrappy.
This is the quilt that is on my bed right now as the weather turns cold. The pattern comes in multiple sizes from table topper, all the way to king. And with fat quarter-friendly instructions, you can shop your stash to find something that will work.
We have a limited supply of kits using Summer’s End. Grab ’em while they last!
