Not So Modern Maples - A Finished Quilt

I finally finished binding my 'Not So Modern Maples', and for once I am ahead of schedule (ECMQG Quilt-A-long is due at the September meeting).

I took these pictures and was cropping them and though "how odd, something just doesn't look right" and a panic set over me - did I somehow mess up with the layout of the blocks?! See how the row in the middle goes all the way across, it's not suppose to be like that. How could I have messed up that bad?? I was freaking out...

Until I looked at the layout from the pattern and a saw it! I had photographed my version the wrong way - sideways duh!! 

If I rotate the photo it is now almost like the original pattern - except see those two bottom leaves? They are in the wrong position. Oh well you can't get it all perfect!!

A close up of the large meander quilting.

Pattern Modern Maples by Lark Crafts, finished size 59" by 70". The background is Kona 'Butter', leaf fabrics are by Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett and a few random fat quarters in florals. Quilting thread is Connecting Threads in 'Cream" which matches the Kona 'Butter' perfectly. The backing is by Heather Bailey 2009 Nicey Jane For Free Spirit in Lindy Leaf  in tangerine- cream, pink and gold. Binding is Hoffman Fabrics 'Balbo Blenders' in latte.

Now I have to wait for fall to cuddle up with my 'Not So Modern Maples' quilt.
