## Maple Leaf Quilt Block

## Materials

- Yellow print and blue print scraps

**Finished block:** 6" square

## Cut the Fabrics

**From yellow print, cut:**

- 2—3-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 4 triangles
- 3—3-1⁄2" squares
- 1—1×5" rectangle

**From blue print, cut:**

- 2—3-7⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for a total of 4 triangles
- 2—3-1⁄2" squares

## Assemble the Block

1. Sew together one yellow print triangle and one blue print triangle to make a triangle-square **(Diagram 1)**. Press the seam allowance toward the blue print triangle. Repeat to make a total of four triangle-squares.

2. Using thread in a color that matches the fabric, appliqué the yellow print 1×5" rectangle on a blue print 3-1⁄2" square to make a stem unit.

3. Lay out the triangle-squares, stem unit, and remaining squares in three horizontal rows** (Block Assembly Diagram)**. Sew together the pieces in each row. Press the seam allowances in one direction, alternating the direction with each row. Then join the rows to make a block.
