How To Create Leaf Quilt Blocks

There are many leaf quilt blocks to create. The different sizes and colors make it a fun quilt block to make and use in your quilts.


I used several leaf quilt blocks in my September Sun quilt. In fact it was a bit of theme. I had fun drafting the various blocks. This is just one the quilts in my of my skill building sew along. With this quilt you learn various piecing styles from strip piecing to sew and flip. Other quilts offer applique, foundation piecing as well as free form. It really is a fun way to build your quilting skills.

Each block comes with video and pdf instructions. This scrappy leaf is one of the blocks in the quilt. I’ve also published the tutorial on my YouTube channel. This will give you and idea of the videos included in the sew along. I don’t include the intro in each video. I only did that for YouTube.


Another fun way to create a leaf in your quilt is to use applique. I did this with my Blowing in the Wind quilt. First I created a color wash using coordinated crumb fabric. Then used reverse applique for the leaves. You can find this pattern in my book.

Patterns & Courses

In Fruition I combined a simple leaf with an scrappy 16 patch block.

This Jumbo Scrappy Star uses a giant leaf as part of it’s design. Learn more about color, value and design in my Stash Busting Design course. Doors for this course will open the beginning of next year. Get on the wait list, so you don’t miss out.

These are just a few ways to use leaf quilt blocks in your quilts. Find more fall quilt projects with this post.
