Different Styling Ideas
We made a few Mapleton Avenue quilts and below are the few I snapped photos of!
Rainbow Cover Quilt
Our cover Mapleton Avenue quilt is a scrap haven! I dug through my color coordinated scrap bins and made eight blocks of each of the following colors: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue and purple. I used a few low volume prints for the background and bound it in a chunky black and white stripe. This quilt has some fun fussy-cut scraps that make me smile when I come across them!
Wildside & True Love Quilt
This version of Mapleton Avenue is made up in a couple of Libs Elliott’s fabric lines. We combined the colorful prints of Wildside for the main fabrics with the black and white prints from True Love for the backgrounds. We paired two prints and alternated them in the blocks and arranged them into gradating rows. I love these bold prints they look great in this pattern!
Wild Nectar Quilt
Here is a totally new style for the Mapleton Avenue quilt. We used a jelly-roll of Crystal Manning’s Wild Nectar fabric from Moda Fabrics. The fabrics are arranged scrappily in the quilt with a solid white background. This line is amazing! The playful florals in the the navy, coral, aqua, pale pink and mustard colors make me swoon.
Me+You Batik Quilt
For a totally different look, we used multiple white on black Me+You batik prints for the main fabrics and a subtle chartreuse print for the background. We used these same fabrics for our Cadence Court quilt so we knew we would love it! This is a good example of how this pattern is great for guys and girls. Grab some black and white prints and a solid background to get started!
If your fabric is a full 44” wide, you can get all 4 pieces needed for the blocks In one strip. We used Reef by Elizabeth Hartman for Robert Kaufman Fabrics and made each block with one print and a linen for the background. We arranged these blocks into a gradation of color across the quilt! I love the linen background in the Mapleton Avenue quilt - it adds a little texture without detracting from the main prints.
We really love this fast and fun quilt pattern! The Mapleton Avenue pattern is available as a PDF and paper pattern. If you make this quilt or any other Sassafras Lane project, we would love to see it! Send us photos, post them to our Flickr group or use our #sassafraslane hashtag on Instagram!
