Sewing Maple Leaves

The next border on the John Deere quilt will be 6" finished maple leaves. I'm piecing two leaves from each of the fabrics I've pulled. That will give me more blocks than I need for this border but I'm planning on am additional border of leaves farther along.

The weather this week has been very mixed up. Sunday evening it started snowing. 

This is what we woke up to Monday morning.

The snow completely melted by 3 pm except for the sad snowman.

The grandsons had a wonderful time playing in the snow all bundled up in their snow pants, coats and boots.

Now we've had several days in the high 50's, low 60's and they're running around without coats!

Oh my such later winter weather but it does happen! We have been above normal this week, seems impossible when you have snow. Your leaf blocks are making me think of fall!
