Fall has been different this year with the leaves taking their sweet time to show us their autumnal gloriousness.

We haven’t had to do any raking in the backyard yet and it’s the end of October! Being able to slowly savor the changing colors has been wonderful.

I have a finished fall project too!  I saw these Modern Maples popping up all over on Instagram and Flickr.  Not wanting to tackle yet another huge project at this time, I settled for a scaled-down version.

I dug out some autumn-esque fabric, got this pieced together and quilted in one afternoon. Talk about instant gratification!

It was the picture taking of the finished project that had me dragging my feet!

I quilted this mini using straight lines spaced 1/2 an inch apart and I’m quite pleased with the result.

It’s now up on the wall in our office next to my only other mini that I made last year.  As you can see, there is a lot more wall space to fill up with other mini quilts.

I’ve got the pieces cut for a Mini Swoon, so that’s what is on the agenda next!
