Heart's Desire - The Center is Together

I appliqued the leaves and berries on the center block.  I really like how they look.

 And I sewed blocks together so that I could applique the overflow leaves onto the neighboring blocks.  I really like the idea of going out side the box (or borders).  I think it adds interest to quilts.

 And then I got all the blocks put together.  I am still working on finishing the leaves.  My center isn't quite square so there will be some adjustments as I do the border.  You can't just rip out a square and adjust when the leaves and stems go across.  I should have been more careful.  But the quilt will be so busy I'm sure I can make the adjustments.
