Little Leaves Quilt

This pattern came out of Elizabeth Hartman's Practical Guide to Patchwork.  I've admired pictures of this quilt on her blog and was so happy there was a tutorial in her book!  I'm making mine 5 blocks x 4 blocks instead of 4x4, though.  Yes, that means I'm sewing 480 little leaves onto this quilt.  I've done 96 so far, and I'm ready to knock out the next 96.  Here are two rows up on my design board:

The top row has been all sewn on, and the bottom row's leaves have just been ironed in place.  The rest of the blocks are still in pieces.  I may change up the order once all my blocks are up there.  That's the beauty of the design board!

Here is a close up of one of the finished blocks:

To think last week, all I had was a big pile of blank 12" white squares!

Update: click here for a few pictures of this finished quilt.
