Dancing Maples JB Quilt Designs
Dancing Maples makes a great autumn runner in fall colours, or a wonderful piece of Canadiana in red and white. This is an original quilt pattern for a table runner measuring 16” x 42” and six placemats measuring 12" x 17". Rolled-back folded bias edges give these leaves curves and apparent movement as they interlock and float above the background, but there is no curved piecing. This is sometimes called Cathedral Window curves.
Avoid directional prints for the leaf and background fabrics because the fabrics will be cut and sewn on various angles. You can make six identical leaves or collect six - 10" fabric squares to make scrappy leaves.
