Modern Maples Quilt top - finished!

Oh boy, I am pretty sure the cooler weather we had last night and all day today really gave me the push to finish this quilt top. I mean I wore a cardigan today, it was that nice out! maples3

Here are some pictures of my Modern Maples Quilt that is just a few steps away from joining me in my living room for some fall time snuggling. I really enjoyed this quilt block and got so carried away making them that I have extra blocks to make some pillows!

The fabrics I used for this project are mainly from the Timeless Treasures Sketch line, which I may add is my new favorite solid. I used it prior in my son's Starry Night Quilt and knew that the great fall colors would be perfect for this project. I started off with just four colors and realized that I needed to add some more and I love how all of the colors blended together so nicely. The newsprint is from Robert Kaufman's Objects line - Newspaper in tan.

Next dilemma is a backing fabric....anyone have an idea for a fun pattern? I thought it might be nice to use a wood grain for the backing, to keep with my Maples theme. Erin Michaels has a great one that might look nice - Lush Uptown Whitetail Wood Grain.
