Step 1:

Make the stem. Cut a 3 1/2″ background square in half diagonally. Next, mark the center of each cut side. Get a 1 x 6″ dark print and mark the center of each long side. Match the center of one background triangle and one 1 x 6″ and sew them together. Then stitch the other triangle to the opposite side of the 1 x 6″ piece, matching the centers. Once done, press the seams toward the center. Trim off the excess fabric and make it a 3 1/2″ square.

Step 2:

Take a 3 7/8″ dark square and a 3 7/8″ background square and place them right sides together. Draw a diagonal line, making 2 half-square triangles. Stitch 1/4″ away from the line of both sides then cut along the drawn line to create half-square triangles. Press the seam allowance toward the dark print and trim excess. Repeat until you have a total of 4.

Step 3:

Arrange the pieces as shown below. Stitch into rows, then stitch the rows together. Press flat on one side. The block should measure 9 1/2″ Repeat until you have 5 leaf blocks.
