This little quilt is an ideal way to use up any scraps of Japanese prints you may have. The fan pattern is nowhere near as difficult as its reputation would have you believe and the size of the block (8 inches) makes the curved piecing really easy. Honest!
The quilt measures 23 inches square. Of course if you get carried away (and have lots of scraps – or even yardage) you can make more blocks and a much bigger quilt.
You can embellish your fans with tassels or beads or whatever takes your fancy on the day, and emphasise its shape with your quilting.
The pattern costs just £3.50 and can be downloaded from the Meadowside-Designs website.
