This project started out with a block swap in 1996, with an online group called Silver Threads.  We all made maple leaf blocks, sent them to the hostess, who pulled a name out of the hat.  What a surprise when I won!  I had enough blocks to make a bed quilt for my brother for Christmas that year, with some left over.  A couple of years ago, I got out the pile of Maple leaf blocks and made a few more, but it wasn't until this summer that I decided to turn them into a quilt.  Tah Dah!  My oldest UFO is now a FO!  The pattern, if anyone is interested, is from quilter's cache.  I machine quilted it with a varigated thread:  green, orange and yellow.

Congrats on finishing a UFO and with such a great result.  Really like the quilting and border fabric.  Fall colors are my favorite as it is my favorite time of year in the Midwest.
