Here is my progress on the leaf quilt. I sorted and then sewed all the HST. Next step was to cut and assemble the end points. Then I sewed up neutral 4 patch and appliqued the stems on.

I've got them all stacked and ready to assemble.

I lay them out one at a time, then sew together. I've got half done and am taking a break before getting to the rest. Once the blocks are done I'll start working on the border and then figure out the layout. I'm not doing any darker blocks like the picture has. I think it looks really neat that way, but I'm going smaller and didn't want to add to the complexity at this point. After all, I'd like to have it done for this fall, not next fall

Wow, now I really want to try that quilt too, Macybaby! Do you have a special ruler for the tip of the leaf unit? It looks like unusual angles.

NZQuiltler, I simply drew it out to make templates. This one is pretty simple because you can go a bit longer on the edges and trim to size once sewn. I make paper templates, stack fabric and glue the template to the fabric. I'll cut the template without seam allowance, then use my ruler lined up at the 1/4" mark and cut with rotary cutter. If I need to cut a lot, I use the piece of fabric with the pattern on it as the next template.

I do have EQ8 and will use that to get templates when I've got something a bit more complicated, but often it's less work for me to make a scale drawing while at the cutting table than to go fire up the computer down in the study.
