For each leaf you are going to need:
2 – off white 2 1/2” X 1 1/2” strips
6 – assorted printed 2 1/2” X 1 1/2” strips
1 – printed 2 1/2” X 2 1/2” square
1 – off white 2 1/2” X 2 1/2” square
6 – off white 1 1/2” X 1 1/2” squares
2 – off white diagonal pieces
1 – assorted printed 1 1/2” X 1 1/2” square for the very center

Overview of how the leaves were made:

Make a template to cut the to the tip of the leaf. Draw a square  2 1/2” X 2 1/2”. Measure over from one corner 1 1/4” and 1/4” down and put a dot. Measure the adjoining corner the same way and put a dot. Diagonally in the corner, measure 1/4” in and put a dot. Connect the dots. With your ruler, add a 1/4” seam allowance. This kite shape is what you will cut your patterned 2 1/2” square with.

The second template is for the off white triangles. Draw the same basic shape out on a 2 1/2” square grid. Use the bottom angled piece and add 1/4 seam allowance to it and cut it out. For each leaf tip piece, you need to cut two off white pieces of this shape. You could also use a RECS tool for the shape.

Anjeannette added a little more batting beneath the leaves for added dimension. Then stipple quilted the block to help make the leaves stand out. So pretty. The stems were hand stitched.
