12 days of Christmas trees

As mentioned yesterday, it's our "ode to the tree" series this week and next.  Today we're showing  an original design by Ann Fahl, who is a prize-winning quilter, designer and author. Her "Ginkgo Christmas Tree" uses a stylized ginkgo leaf that is arranged in rows to create a realistic miniature tree!

At Ann Fahl's website you can find her gorgeous art quilt patterns, including Ginkgo Christmas Tree. For a treat, also check out Ann Fahl's art quilt gallery. Her specialty includes threadwork, and she has two books and a new DVD on the subject - with C&T Publishing -called Coloring with Thread.  We're also followers of her blog, Ann Fahl's Color and Quilts, where she shows her works-in-progress and provides tips, such as her recent detailed posts about darning feet

  1. I like this idea using the ginko leaves, I've seen a similar tree (not a quilt) done with yo-yos instead.


We love reading each and every comment... thanks for visiting our blog!
