Grandmother’s Fan

My design for Grandmother’s Fan wasFan1 developed from patterns found in quilt books.  I saw the fan and wanted to use it in something very special.  The pattern had to be enlarged (a trip to the Copy store) and a few practice blocks before it was correct.  The rose pattern fabric used in the fan as well as the border was purchased on my trip to Paris last December, so this made it ideal for this special quilt.

Finished size is 70.5 X 74.5 inches for the on-point placementFan2Fan3.  I enjoyed using various free motion stitches.


Winter Blue Table Runner

Quick and easy strip-pieced construction.  This Runner was made with fabric on hand; pattern found in the Winter 2014 issue of QW.  Completed this 20 X 45 inch runner in two short evenings.  Idea for a holiday gift.
