I remembered reading this post on Bonnie Hunter’s blog about quilting baptist fans. Basically what she does is hand quilt the fans around the outside first and then spiral in towards the center. Since my HQ is a sit down model, I wondered if I could machine quilt the fans in the same way – and the answer is yes. Thank you Bonnie!
The last time I quilted fans they were in rows across the top from bottom to top which reminds me more of a clam shell motif. The inward spiral of fans moves the eye to the center of the quilt.
