Another Quilt Complete!!



   Yes, it's true; another quilt is complete. Completely hand made little fans appliqued on cotton muslin playfully dance on this pretty baby quilt. Hand quilting provides detail and echo design to each fan as well as shadow imaging to the appliqued squares. Soft green fabric gives binds the quilt in a pretty frame, pulling together the playful colors of each fan piece.



   Special and unique in so many ways Grandmother's Fan is created from pieces of my children's clothing. Swatches of spring dresses and little boy's ties; vests and skirts they have worn hand-made over the years lovingly preserved in a pretty little quilt.


   Almost a year of time and love have gone into this pretty little treasure. Look for it later today on our Etsy shop (linked on the tab above). My hope for this beautiful piece is to bring happiness and love to a home soon...it could be yours!
