Westering Women - Block 3 Sweet Gum Leaf

This block has a combination of a lot of Y seams, a lot of seams meeting in the middle, and a bit of applique - I was surprised not to hear more grumblings from the participants -

I started to cut out the background fabric before realizing I was making a 12 inch block and with only a "snippet" - a quarter of a fat quarter - it was not big enough to make the lower part of the block.  I decided to use muslin rather than starting over when I figured out all of the backgrounds I wanted to use for this were snippet-sized.  I think it will be fine in a quilt.
