Whats more perfect for Canada Day but to sew a Maple Leaf block or two. The Autumn Leaves block instructions from the Delaware Quilts Block of the Month is easy to follow and provides multiple sizes. Combining several sizes makes for an eye catching quilt.


Autumn toned fabrics for the leaves – solid or prints

White for the background – solid or low volume

Small strip of brown print or solid for the stem


Following the instructions on this website, cut fabrics for either a 31/2″, 61/2″, 91/2″ or 12 1/2″ unfinished block (3″, 6″, 9″ or 12″ finished). Assemble as per directions.


Note: for our Block Lotto draw, the larger 9″ or 12″ blocks will receive 2 tickets and the smaller 3″ or 6″ one ticket.
