How About Grandma? - Dresden Grandmother's Fan Quilt Project

I decided to add these SCRAPPY FANS variations. You decide.

I can do these samples in ANY color combinations. Let me know if you'd like to see a different color combination.

Click for a prettier view.

How about this for a future team project?

(Must be finished in a 4 day period

Uh uh, 99.5 % of the team stampeded off)

It can be done in any color scheme that you like.

The fans can be foundation pieced or string pieced.

The dresden fans can be appliqued to the background, or inset.

The blocks finish at 8 x 8 inches. (You may make yours smaller or larger)

The finished quilt size is 60 x 60 inches. (variations on the block size will change your quilt size)

There are 36 blocks. (hides as I type that)

Can we get a vote?

Type YES or NO in your comment space below.

(Seriously, with our busy schedules, it could take at least 3 months to finish this one.)

Quote of the day

By Mark Twain:
"Forget and forgive. This is not difficult, when properly understood. It means that you are to forget inconvenient duties, and forgive yourself for forgetting. In time, by rigid practice and stern determination, it comes easy."
