D 84 - Donna James -Berries and Whipped Cream - Gingko

I call this quilt Berries and Whipped Cream. This 60 x 60 quilt was designed with the EQ6 using the 54-40 or fight block, and all the fabrics came from my stash. I wanted to keep the density similar to the vintage quilt it will reside with. I made a plastic template of the small ginko leaf from my "Mini-Ginko" template, to add in the half circles and in the empty white triangles near the borders. By changing the "step", I was able to use the same designs in the pink and blue curves as I used in the white areas. The Ginko template was also used in the border.
