A while ago I decided to do a string quilt. Not feeling the love of a traditional string block with muslin, I decided on making another stringy project - as a fan quilt.
First deciding on the fabric - my left over Kate Spain fabrics screamed spring, summer and good mood to me, so that was an easy choice.
Then finding the inspiration and deciding on the placement of fans
Then cutting the strips
And then cutting a lot of 9 degree wedges
Sewing the wedges together in big 45 degree 20" fans
So far so good :) Next step is to figure out the background fabrics (Linnen? Small dots?) and start the appliqué.
This is an easy and fun project and I have a feeling this will end up being a really great quilt.
Becuase I'm using random size strips there has been very little measuremenst and no pinning so far, so it almost feels like cheating.
