Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Intermediate quilting skills including an accurate scant 1/4" seam.

Pattern Description:

Dancing Maples is an original quilt pattern for a table runner or wall hanging and six placemats. Rolled-back folded bias edges give these leaves curves and apparent movement as they float above the background, but there is no curved piecing. Avoid directional prints for the leaf and background fabrics because the fabrics will be cut and sewn on various angles. If you would like scrappy leaves, replace maple fabric requirement with a 9" x 10" fabric scrap for each leaf.

Instructions are included for quilted veins on the leaves and meanders in the background that make the leaves really pop. Dancing Maples makes a great house warming or thank you gift.
