Just finished this Fan Quilt top. It's now ready to start quilting. Here is how to info for you. These are the parts to put together. I sew the fan blades first. You will need to press all the seams to one direction.
Next i sew the small end of the fan on. Yes i do pin. Start in the middle then the ends.
Nest is the large background. Again i do pin. The same as the small end. There is a short video on my Ustream page. www.ustream.tv/channel/txnana I like to sew with the seams on top so i can make sure the seam stays going the right way when it goes under the needle. After sewing again press the seam. Square up your block. I decided to add a black border around each fan at 2 1/2 inches. I also added the same black to the outside border at 6 inches. You can do yours any way you like. I think the black brings out the colors in the fan blades. This Top fits the top of my King size bed.
