New Signature Quilt for Quilt retreat WIP

I am working on a new quilt for the quilters group I belong to. We have two retreats per year and we do a signature quilt, that everyone signs. This camp I am doing the quilt, I will be adding some lettering and the idea is to have them write in the leaves since the theme was jungle.  I started with a painting I did for a challenge on Wet Canvas. I liked the leaves so well that I translated it to fabric. I mixed my hand painted fabrics with commercial fabrics and did geometric shapes along with the organic shapes of the caladium leaves. I hope you like it, I will post a finished picture in a few days.  What is everyone else up too?

Thanks Shannon and Pat, I am finishing it up now with a black satin stitch around the larger leaves and some leaf pattern stitching for the quilting. I hope they like it, I like the idea of everyone signing the leaves.
