To leaf, or not to leaf???

So I've been thinking about what to add to the left side of the quilt, since the right side is pretty well finished. I was running last night looking at all the beautiful trees and thinking that it would be nice if the leaves would get out of the way, they kept blocking my view of the trunk. Duh.

So i've made a few leaves, I'm thinking if I still like them tonight I will make some more and sew them on. Here they are placed on the quilt:

I'll paint them with some gold paint for a bit of a shine and twist/felt some red wool for the stems.
