Do you have this ruler? I'm beginning to like this ruler. I bought it last year at a quilt show. While I plan to sometime, I have yet to make any leaves from it yet.
Recently I've used it for a couple of non-leafy projects and I'll share how I used it today. While making some simple runners for my hallway tables, I was looking for an alternative shape to square ends. A quick glance up at my ruler holder and I knew what I would do. It was just too easy. My runners are 12" wide and there are convenient 6" markings either side of the center point on the ruler. Following the curve of the ruler, I simply made a marked line on the fabric to sew on. It was perfect for for today's project.

clipped the curves.
|Voila. Turn right side out and lightly press.|

than plain squared off ends.
