When I saw Carole's (From my Carolina Home) Maple Leaf block tutorial, I knew I wanted to use it to make a gift for one of my sisters. She loves to decorate and I thought having a fall themed table runner for her table would be perfect. Carole posted the tutorial in early October and here it is the end of November, and I am just getting to it!
I pulled some fall themed fabrics from my stash and made some 12' blocks. The tutorial is for 6" blocks but I just cut my squares at 4.5" for big bold leaves.
I decided to use some of the scraps and make a pieced outer border.
Hopefully it isn't too big for her dining room table. I think it finishes out at about 18" x 54". It probably won't be used until next year as she is someone who gets out the Christmas decoration on the day after Thanksgiving.
I am just pleased with myself for finally getting it finished!
❤ To all of you in the states, have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Hope it is filled with good food and love! 💖
