Serpentine 30's Fan Quilt

 I love Fan Quilts,
and have always been
intrigued by the many layout options.

 Serpentine 30's Fan
Made and Quilted by Kathleen Bond
Shown at the
Prescott Loves Quilting Show

"The fan blocks were purchased from a 
Quilt Guild Rummage Sale.
No one wanted the blocks, probably because the 
fabric combinations 
were a little odd.
After I sewed them all together, the 
graphic appeal is wonderful."
 Another example of how a quilter can look at a simple block 
and see it's true potential.
Fabrics that sat dormant for 80 years 
can now be appreciated again!
The red really makes this quilt come alive!
Fan Quilts are a great way to use up left over
bits of fabric from here and there.
And Kathleen's layout is perfect.

fan quilts are pretty and like you say many options with them. Are you roasting in Phoenix area? sounds too hot to me.

There's so many settings for fan blocks, they're just bigger drunkards path really so yo7u could do similar settings. Looking lovely!
