A New Leaf Table Runner

To make the blocks appear to be straight set, alternate two background fabrics in the leaf blocks, then piece the same fabrics into hourglass units and side setting triangles. For stems, back a green print with no-sew fusible web, then rotary-cut the green print into strips with a pinking blade. Fabrics are from the Joy of Life collection by Mary Capan for Hoffman California Fabrics.
