    My Mom would love them. She collects maple leaf items since my family used to make syrup. (We haven't made any since the tenant burned down the sugar shack looking for something amongst the papers and wood with a lighted match. Accident? Hmmm...)

    Cheryl, I don't know if there is any kind of an option like that linked into the Quilting Board. I would just left click your mouse to highlight and select whatever parts you want, then right click it and click on "copy". Then you can open a new Microsoft Works or Word document and paste each section into that. It works on the pictures too. Glad you liked this enough to want to do that! Hope that helps!

    Hi QuiltE and thank you too! We are definitely influenced by all things Canadian. Maybe that's why I chose a maple leaf, eh? LOL! We can see your country every day right across the river and half our shoppers in this area are from Ontario.

    I believe I'm going to do this for Christmas gifts - only instead of a maple leaf, I'll draw a fat Christmas tree and use your directioins.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks purrfectquilts & Montana Jan for those excellent ideas!

So I told myself “Lara, Step Away From the Computer”, went for a walk outside in the sunshine, got a real maple leaf and made up my own pattern. I found some fabrics that would hide stains and wash up well and then made up a few maple leaf mug rugs for our family room. My DH even said he loves them!

    So I am now posting this for anyone else who would also like to make them. Seems like an Autumn-y thing to do. If any of you do make one, I would LOVE to see your pictures and see how they come out in different fabrics.

    Please bear with me while I post the directions and pictures, as I’m going to post them one step at a time to keep them in the right order.
    Beautiful!

    These are terrific, I just love them. I think I'll enlarge the pattern and do some matching potholders. Your directions are wonderful, thanks so very much for the tutorial and the inspiration.

    Thank you for posting this and for the template! I can have autumn again though I'm here in Florida now, and I've sure missed the colors and crisp air from when I lived in the northeast. Where did you get your fabric? I really like that gold and green paisley and would love to find some.
