leaf quilt

I finished my fall leaf quilt top.  The seam ripper and I spent some time together getting these blocks the way I wanted them.  (I hate it when I make the same mistake twice :0)
 I chose the last arrangement from my previous post to set the blocks.  I couldn't wait to put the borders on.  I've been saving this black background floral for a long time waiting for just the right project.  I just love it! 
It's called Winterthur Toile.  I wish I had enough for backing too!  I won't get to machine quilting this right away but hopefully before fall.
 
Happy Quilting!!
