    Default Fan Quilt finnished for a friend

    My friend's great aunt hand pieced the fans of this quilt, and my friend has had them in a bag ever since. She asked me to do something with it, so after collaboration, this is what we came up with. Finally finished it a few minutes ago, and she's coming to get it later this evening. Lots of marking for the crosshatch, but I'm pleased with the end result. Click image for larger version.

    What a beauty. The scalloped edges and the hand pieced fans are a perfect match.

    That is beautiful! I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your friend gets there to see it!

    Karen, if your friend doesn't weep with joy, don't worry I'm doing it for her. I love it when anyone brings life into a project that someone else wasn't able to complete, and you did a wonderful job of it.

    Wow - that is absolutely beautiful. The cross hatching really sets off the fans. Well done.
