Sometimes I just have to work until it is done. I started playing with these vintage fan blocks on Friday.
And today I have a finished quilt top. It finished at 82″ square. All the fabric except the fans is new, but I think it coordinates with the vintage fabric.
I did this one all on the machine so it went pretty fast. (but it WILL be hand quilted) It still needs a good pressing, but you can get the idea of how it looks
Here are a bunch of pictures (click to enlarge)
So what is the name of the pattern? I based it on the pattern that you probably know as New York Beauty…here is an antique from the Quilt Index
It has the same 9 block layout but with different cornerstones, and sashing, and different fans (no points) so what pattern does that make it…I’ll call it my own original ….I can never follow a pattern anyway. I can’t have any fun copying someone elses work. But I can take other peoples Ideas and change them.
I have a pile of scraps leftover and still a few of the fans that I didn’t use….I will have to make them into a little quilt or 2 for AAQI
here are pictures of the scraps and a few fans.
Now that I have that out of my system I can get back to some hand quilting.
