Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative and more Maple Leaf blocks

My donation is about ready to mail, but I wanted to encourage you to visit Lori at Humble Quilts. Her recent post is about this very worthwhile fundraiser. 
Quilters Newsletter magazine and Electric Quilt have paired up for a contest.  The deadline is quickly approaching, so visit them here.
Pieced more of my maple leaf blocks together. Blocks in this one come from Australia, Canada, Idaho and Wisconsin. Don't know which direction I will take with this.  I may wait for other block exchanges in the future to continue to add on to it.

I selected the fabrics for my follower appreciation gifts yesterday.
Each cut is a 1/3 yd of fabric. 
Because I love reproduction fabrics, these are from Jo Morton's Annadale collection.  
And these are from the French General by Moda.  Red and aqua blue are becoming two of my favorite color combinations. Check back on Saturday morning to see if your name was drawn.

Your maple leaf quilt top is stunning! You chose such a clever and creative way to set the blocks and the rich colors make such a dramatic statement. How sweet of you to offer a fabric follower appreciation giveaway. You picked some beautiful fabrics to share with a couple lucky recipients!
