Album Leaf Quilt Block Pattern

© Janet Wickell
The Album Leaf quilt block is very much like Maple Leaf and a design often referred to as Tea Leaves, but with a signature panel at its center.

Signature panels are often used to create blocks for friendship quilts, with a group of friends either making blocks to share with each other or for one recipient. Each block maker signs her name or other information within the signature panel.

Album Leaf is very easy to assemble, and can be sewn in a couple of different ways. We'll use half square triangle units and plain squares, along with quick pieced patchwork for the signature area and the leaf's stem.

Album leaf finishes at 9-inches square.
