This is the third installment of the tutorial for creating the “twirling fan” quilt. If you are just tuning in, click here to see the first two steps. I hope you join me!
At this point you have made the fan units.
4. thread your machine with a dark thread to match the fabrics used for the fan points. (I used black).
Beginning at one end of the fan, straight stitch in the ditch (along the seam) between the colorful fan fabrics and the dark points. See below (red line is sewing line).
5. repeat for all fans to create blocks. gently remove freezer paper and press blocks. If your fan blocks are square, sew them together in desired setting. If you sewed your fans to rectangles and plan to make your blocks like mine, the next step will instructions on setting in the center square to make larger blocks.
