Sew Many Options!

Determining the placement of the applique leaves on Sue's "Falling Leaves" quilt may seem like a simple task, but she went through lots of options before settling on the final arrangement.  While working, Sue frequently takes pictures of the work in progress to get a more objective view - hence, all these pictures!

 These first 3 seemed to produce confusion rather than a focal point.
Better; the orange strip on the left serves to "anchor" the 3 leaves.  But the angle of the top one is wrong.
Having them point all the same direction looks better, but still kind of boring.
Finally, reversing the direction of the center leaf was the right combination.  Focal point created.  Next, to do something about the bland green background.
