My Grandmother's Fan Quilt

This is the only Grandmother's Fan quilt
that I have ever made.
The blocks are big at least 17 inches square.
The prints that you see here are all from cotton sheets,
with the exception of the red.
The colors go very good together.
The binding is machine stitched with a
gold color thread for strength. I had intentions of using
this quilt but never did.
The hand quilting is simple just stitching around
each fan shape. A heart bow is stitched in the
white areas. The red makes this quilt pop!




I hope you enjoyed viewing this quilt.
Thank you for visiting me!

I remember the quilt that looked similar to this one. Mom had it and it was made with a burnt or orange velvet... it was one of the favorite that got used the most.:-)
