I was so happy to see this in the mail yesterday! I had to open it right away and take pictures. It is beautifully done. The little gold lines look like embroidery stitches, and the fabric has an almost brocade look to it. I just love it. The colors are so vivid and pretty. The block is the perfect one to showcase the prints. I love the way the leaf pattern moves around it. I've been carrying it around the house looking at different views of it, how the light hits it affects the color so much.
