GGA-113 THREE ICHOS (GINGKOS)

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Hand applique or fuse

Pattern Description:

Icho is the Japanese word for "Gingko".
I have admired the grace and beauty of oriental art for many years. So when I came across a book of Ancient Japanese Family Crests I began adapting some to applique.

A certain amount of artistic license has been taken with each of the "Crests" that I have adapted. Some elements have either been added or deleted in order to make the design more "applique friendly". Most are relative quick to make and individual blocks can be used as a small wall hanging, or several can be combined for a larger quilt.
