My first fan – not on the blog but for ‘Fanfare’ in Quilting From Little Things by Sarah Fielke. This is a weekend of firsts as I also completed the first row for the RSC15 challenge too.

Fanfare first fan

Now I only have 15 more to go. They are 6″ unfinished and I will add a few plain squares for a different configuration to the one in the book. Sarah encourages you to experiment so I did.

The background is lighter than the photograph and I will use more than one shade of purple and perhaps mix them up so the inner circle – to cover the inner raw edges – is different to the main square. All of the ‘fans’ are different colours pulled from my scrap bag. I have been using my scraps a lot lately but they don’t seem to be going down much!

    Love your fan. I can imagine a lay out of these to look like a road map quilt.

      It might look a bit like that, I have prepared a few more so it shouldn’t take much longer

    Love the colours, I’ve not plucked up the courage to do curves on a quilt yet!

      I haven’t sewn any on my machine – by hand is a lot easier!
