That leaf block is another great way to use our candies! Thank you for sharing, Macybaby. My file of candy possibilities keeps growing.

I made a slight miscalculation for my leaf quilt. I wanted to make it smaller, 70x70 instead of 90x90, but when I figured the number of blocks, I used 70x90 and made 19 leaves, but I'm only going to need 14.

That is not a big deal, except that when I figured the neutrals, I subtracted for 19 leaves instead of 14, and this morning discovered I needed another 150 neutral squares. I started digging through my scrap totes as I didn't have any more neutrals cut. The good/bad part is that I won't have to cut any yardage to get that many, because I've let my scraps get out of hand again!

I've got the leaf quilt top assembled. I was sewing on the border and was a few feet down when I realized I was sewing dark to light and not light to light! Then I noticed I'd run out of bobbin thread about 2" from the start of the seam. Probably the only time I was very glad to have run out of bobbin thread long before I noticed it.

Heavens to Betsey, Macybaby! How did you finish it that fast? Did you eat or sleep at all? It takes me months to finish a top. It looks amazing!!!
