What a beautiful quilt! We love the charming, art-deco feel of this quilt, and Amy of Seven Stitches has put together an excellent tutorial demonstrating how to create it. The tutorial is mainly about the block itself, but the quilt pictured here should be relatively easy to complete once you've mastered the block. More from Amy:
"The following tutorial looks at how to make a Grandmother’s Fan quilt block. This is a traditional block that was very popular in the 1930’s and reflects the sunburst motifs of Art Deco. It is much like a Dresden Plate block but allows for a little more tolerance as it is only a quarter circle. This tutorial includes making the templates for a 10" finished block. The applique is done with vliesofix and machine top stitching."
Finished Size: (estimated) 54" x 74" (137cm x 188cm)
Skill Level: Intermediate
