Learn how to make the Grandmother’s Fan traditional block, with a modern twist!
Create the fan with a series of petals. You will easily sew them together in an arc, then attach them to a background block. You can do this either with the sewing machine, or by hand, which Sallieann demonstrates, and then she also gives you a design option of adding a heart in fused applique – the technique for which was used in a Four Hearts workshop in this series.
Sallieann also introduces you to using freezer paper as a template.

You can find the same colourway of Fat 8ths featured in this video (Forest Fruits) as well as 7 other colourways that the quilt would look equally stunning in at Oakshott Fabrics. For more ideas and inspiration, click here
Finished size approx 60″ x 70″
This block, along with all the others in sampler series, can be repeated to create a quilt in their own right. Just make lots either in the same colourway, or various.
The full pattern is available on Sallieann’s website.
Sallieann enjoys traditonal quilting techniques and has won several quilt show awards in the UK and the USA. Be sure to check out her wool applique projects using a blend of hand and machine sewing.
