Scrappy quilts are my favorite...
the way quilts were originally intended right?
scrappy maple leaf block
I'm calling this square for my Farm Girl Vintage quilt
the"Iowa maple leaf" block
I bought "my scraps" at the Fons & Porter Quilt shop
in Madison County Iowa.
Madison County is also famous for it's covered bridges.
Remember the movie...
The Bridges of Madison County
with Clint Eastwood?
It was a beautiful day to be shooting covered bridges...
even if the leaves weren't in full color yet.
I'm hoping to do a canvas of one of our pictures.


  1. Great movie . . .
    Like your leaf quilt and pictures . . .
    A canvas you say??

  2. Someday we will get to see that bridge (again as there is pic proof I was there as a kid).
