COM­PLET­ING THE BLOCKS

Re­peat to make a to­tal of four A-B units of each A fabric. 3. Cen­ter and sew D to op­po­site long sides of G to make a D-G unit as shown in Fig­ure 2; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of four D-G units. 4. To com­plete one Leaf block, se­lect one E square, three match­ing C squares, four match­ing A-B units, one D-G unit, and two H and six F strips.

5. Ar­range and join two A-B units with one E square and two F strips to make the top row as shown in Fig­ure 3; press.

I have been fas­ci­nated by the geo­met­ric shapes used in jew­elry pieces, ter­rar­i­ums and other mod­ern items, and I have been try­ing to fig­ure out how to get the same look in a pieced quilt. This is a sim­pli­fied ver­sion of my orig­i­nal vi­sion. Clas­sic squares and half-square tri­an­gles are com­bined with strips of dark brown for an up­dated block that makes a state­ment.” —Holly Daniels
