Maple Star is a wonderful looking block. It is an easy block but just a little more involved than some of the basic beginner blocks. I had a little bit of trouble squaring this quilt block up. I think when I was ironing the seams, I must have stretched the fabric a little. So be careful when you iron that you don't pull the fabric.
I made a Lovie Lap Quilt" with the Maple Star quilt block. After sewing the top together, I did some beautiful free motion quilting to complete the quilt. Free motion quilting is one of my favorite parts of making these quilts.
So that's it for quilt block seventy-seven. On to block seventy-eight. If you would like to follow my blog, click on the RSS Feed button to the right.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
