Grandmother’s Fan is another traditional block from Sallieann given a modern twist with the lovely Oakshott shot cotton fabrics.
The fan is created with a series of petals. You can easily sew them together in an arc which then needs to be attached to a background block. This can be done 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.
