Today I’m going to demonstrate how sewing a fan isn’t that difficult.
My fan is 9″ x 9″ and it’s pieced traditionally. The large size of the block makes sewing curves easier.
The block is part of my new pattern called “Wheels”. It’s a modern quilt. I enjoyed making this quilt very much.
The quilt has 8 fan blocks arranged into 2 large circles.
This is how you make the fan blocks:
This quilt is fat quarter friendly.
Quilt size: 48” x 48”
Finished block sizes
6” x 6”, 6” x 9” and 9” x 9”
Number of blocks

The blocks are traditionally pieced. The pattern includes 2 fan templates.
The pattern includes alternative colour schemes.

Some fabric recommendations for making this quilt with prints.
Coco fat quarter pack by Michael Miller in browns, greens, blues and greys would make a great quilt.
Or this Island batik fat quarter pack.

My book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
