I am in love with antique blocks. When you work with donations, one never knows what you'll get. Well, we got in a stack of antique, all hand pieced, Grandmother's Fan squares! We were thrilled.
I had already gotten the rows laid out before I sat down to sew, so I marked them with my new alphabet pins. I made these myself, and will be happy to write a tutorial with info if anyone is interested. Just let me know in the comments!
Row by row, I got the entire top put together. I know it went faster because of the marking alphabet pins!
I added a 2 1/2" white border first, then it came time to make the strips for a strippy border. I needed to bring those fun colors out onto the borders.
Here she is in all of her glory. This flimsy will be small stitch quilted with a scalloped border.
It is always so nice when the points match up. 81x97.
