Ginkgos in the Round Fini

I have made it a practice not to begin something new until I have completed the current project and most of the time I stick to that habit. I’m very glad that I broke from my routine and created Ginkgos in the Round.  It was a very satisfying project which I think could yield a fun series.

Ginkgos in the Round, 12" x 12", 2014, For SaleIt measures 12″ x 12″. I used a fat quarter of hand-dyed fabric and more than a full spool (164 yards to the spool) of 50-weight silk-finish cotton thread. And yes, I opened the spool for this project and had to go to the store to buy another spool to complete the thread painting.

    Beautiful — and I’m so glad you linked to the earlier post; life’s been busy and I hadn’t read it. Seeing the beginnings, reading of your experiences, and now seeing it finished is fascinating!

    That is a really stunning piece Franki. I love ginkgo leaves and am patiently waiting for my little tree I planted 5 or 6 years ago to grow bigger. You did a beautiful job on this.
