I planned this quilt for my nephew when he was born. He's 14.
Leaf blocks with stems were done back then. I sewed up the other three on Sunday. Now I have to remember how I did those stems. Applique, yes, but they're little "tubes" of fabric. I'm pretty sure I know which book has the instructions.
I remember I drafted this pattern myself, and I was pretty proud of that.
I'm keeping this quilt for myself, since my nephew's tastes don't run to flowery calicos, and hey, let's face it. I'm greedy.
I have three of each color cut out for 12" blocks, so this quilt should be at least 36x48, not including any sashing, borders, or binding. However, it's not going to come together all that quickly, as I don't have all the muslin cut out yet.
