On July 16th we had a giveaway for my new Moda fabric
The winners are:
- Jacqueline L
- Ida from Central PA
The contest is over but here's a sketch of a quilt to make with
a fat quarter pack
BlockBase Pattern # 3355
79" x 79"
Blocks finish to 15"
Border finishes to 9-1/2"
The double fan pattern was first published by the Alice Brooks
syndicate in 1936.
I drew it up in EQ7 in Morris Jewels fabric, alternating the print
fan spokes with solid Moda Grunge
and added a lot of yellow solid too.
Moda Grunges are textured, almost solids.
The Spokane Daily Chronicle carried this
column on November 16, 1936.
"Send 10 cents, carefully wrapped," for the pattern.
"Alice" showed a snakey set.
Another set for Whirling Fans.
Here's why you need BlockBase for your PC.
You can draw #3355 any size.
And rotate the blocks before you begin piecing.
For the border you can get four 10" strips out of a width of yardage.
You'll need 2-1/4 yards to border the 79" quilt.
For the background in the blocks EQ sez you need 3-1/2 yards of a dark Grunge
And 1/2 yard of the pink Grunge if you want all the fan quarter circles to be the same.
I added a yard of yellow for punch.
