We are already on our fourth block with this QAL. The fourth block of this QAL is the leaf block.

You can find how to piece this block here.

In this post, I will be sharing with you I quilted mine.

I had envisioned feathers wrapping inside the leaf so I went ahead and go with it.

You can practice doodling the quilting with this practice sheet as I did here. If you are still not confident with feathers, you can trace the vines instead as I did in the second block below.

I filled the background with swirls and pebbles. Of course you can fill it with whatever filler you wish to do. You can get tons of inspiration and tutorial by Leah Day here.

If you want to practice feathers, I find Carla Barret’s practice sheet very useful. Get use to doodling it with paper on pen first and you will get there. Mine still need practice, but I am pretty happy so far.

Here is how I do my feathers:

And here is how I do Swirls and Pebbles.
