Five large ginkgo leaves are embroidered over tulle; all placed on a patchwork background of 4 squares in dark blue, green and purple. Each is embroidered with variegated thread. Dark iridescent bugle beads are sewn in a tiny fan motif and machine quilted with a dark variegated thread. The edges are bound with a dark monoprint.
This quilt was made to illustrate a point in the introduction of my book Coloring with Thread. I needed a quilt that was similar to Ginkgo Discovery, a quilt that I sold long before digital cameras!
Sometimes the smallest pieces turn out to be the best. I really love this quilt.
