Well, I'm relieved it's over.
This block looked so easy. In fact, I thought it was rather plain. After checking my books on older quilts, I found it is a common block and instantly recognizeable. So I couldn't add any fancy doo-dads.
Just to make it more interesting I decided to piece the leaves, Susan McCord style. I've always admired the quilt hanging in the Henry Ford Museum. I can't remember it's name but you probably know the one I'm referring to. That bit wasn't hard after I discovered it appliqued easier if the seams were pressed open.
