Tessellated Leaf

I was in a birthday block swap and the birthday gals theme was "leaves". Well, I didn't just want another maple leaf or appliquéd leaf so I made this one. The light and dark make it stand out but I think the addition of the the two different color borders make it look like day and night. To get the block to the required 12" after making the smaller blocks, I just added the borders oversized and then trimmed to size. This "no fail" method of sizing works all the time.

Individual blocks are 1.5 inches and there are 6 to a sheet. Cut apart at red lines.

Make half the leaves light with a dark background and half the leaves dark with a light background.
