John Samuels of Clinton, Horticultural Chief of the 1892 World’s Fair, brought ginkgo seedlings home to his West Clay Street residence when the great expo ended. The seedlings grew to maturety and a few still exist, making the ginkgo a species that is literally rooted in Hickman County History.
With that in mind, I created this stylized ginkgo design as a quilt triangle on the garage at The Emma House, 308 South Washington Street, Clinton, Ky 42031. The design on the garage is facing Crume Street and can be viewed from that location..

Jimmy and Tammy Westbrooks used a 5 x 5 piece of fiberglass board for the quilt block. Krylon fusion spray paint for plastic was used for the large areas and paint pens for the details on the large chicken. The small chicks were cut from adhesive-backed vinyl using the Cricut cutting machine and then adhered to each corner. It was then clear coated before hanging it on the barn. This quilt block can be seen at 1160 Wilkins Road, Clinton, KY.
