Maple Leaf quilt block

The Maple Leaf quilt block is nine patch block that is usually used for an autumn quilt. It is a classic block but it can also be interpreted in a modern quilt.

Cutting Instructions for the Maple Leaf quilt block

The stem of the Maple Leaf quilt block can be made in different ways. I am showing you the easier way. If you need a narrower stem than you should follow this tutorial.

Always be careful of the colors you are choosing. They can easily mess up your block (or quilt) or on the contrary, make it shine! I prefer to make a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It makes me more confident to continue and make the whole thing.

And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.

Finished Block Size Cut 2 squares from Dark fabric and Light Fabric Cut 4 squares from Dark fabric and 1 square from Light Fabric Cut 2 squares from Light Fabric
6” 2 7/8” 2.5” 1 1/4”
9” 3 7/8” 3.5” 1 3/4”
12” 4 7/8” 4.5” 2 1/4”



Quilts made from the Maple Leaf quilt block

Quilts made with this block are fairly traditional, but many quilters have a really modern way of interpreting the block. This way more gorgeous quilts were made using colorful fabrics and not only colors from the “autumn range”. If you have made a quilt using this block, you could write about it in the comments section, and so we could add it here!
