Each ginkgo leaf is different, just like the ones blowing off the tree in my neighbor's yard.
I used a variegated 40 wt thread that shows up nicely against most of the blocks.
There are 42 of these 8" squares and I have the leaves going every which way across the top. Next, I plan on quilting the smaller white squares with another organic type shape, a loose interpretation of a flower. ITIS is the name of my quilting game--I'll Try It & See. Practicing only goes so far!
