mini maple leaf quilt

Happy November!
Hope you are doing wonderfully and enjoying some lovely autumn weather! I wanted to get one more fall project in before I start Christmas sewing, so I made another mini wall quilt with maple leaves. 
I used a mix of some of my favorite vintage and new fabrics in pinks and yellows, with a cream and gold sparkle background, and bubblegum pink stripes to finish it off. I kept the hand quilting simple with just one set of diagonal lines, which I loved how it turned out!
So, now it's hanging up to enjoy for the rest of this month until Christmas decorations take over my home! ;)
I have started some Christmas sewing for the shoppe, and this sweet deer is one of the projects I started using the darling deer pattern from the Bustle and Sew magazine. I am thinking this would be sweet on a felt Christmas stocking, which I want to make soon!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me!! And, to see more peaks at my Christmas makes for the shoppe this year, you can come visit me on IG!

Wishing you all a lovely and crafty day! xo
