Spring Ginkgoes

Ginkgo leaves are Ann’s favorite shape in the world. In this quilt she scatters oversized ginkgo leaves across a background of blue, hand-painted fabric squares. Each of the leaves is heavily embroidered in a single-hued variegated thread. If you look closely, you will find that some of the edges appear to be turned up and they’re embroidered in a different color. Three embroidered blue dragonflies add contrast to the shapes and colors. The insects’ wings are iridescent and transparent, so you can see the leaves right through them. This arrangement of leaves is set inside of a fused dark turquoise inner border which has been appliqued with a decorative stitch. The quilting around the leaves is done with a variegated thread, you will see lots of loops and an occasional ginkgo quilted in the background. The edges are bound with the background fabric. Original
