Counterpane with Leaves WIP

I decided that because my parents so desperately need an afghan, that I would make them one for Christmas. It's funny because all my mother knits are blankets and she only has one handmade one, and it's falling apart.
Of course, I chose a pattern (counterpane with leaves) that required quite a bit of seaming, as I always do, because I absolutely hate seaming and I have to complain about something. I still have about 60% left to do, fortunately the blocks (when seamed together, ugh) end up being about 25"x25" so it's not like I'll be spending more time seaming than knitting as I did with my sock yarn blanket. The photo only shows the inner square, my favourite part, and needs some serious blocking.
Quick post, but I've got lots of seaming to do...
