Fanfare: An old design with a contemporary look!

My newest pattern will be available next Wednesday. "Fanfare" uses 3 traditional fan designs in a new setting. The fabric I used in the samples is called "Vintage Rosie" by Northcott. This fabric will be available in quilt shops next Spring. If you can't wait until then to try this new pattern, you can use up some of your wonderful stash fabrics to make a really scrappy quilt (You do have a stash, don't you?)

The fan shapes can also be cut from 2 1/2" strips - perfect for Jelly Rolls!

The fans are hand-pieced and hand-appliqued, so this makes a great take-along project when travelling.

There are instructions for 2 different sizes: 63" x 63" and 35" x 35". The smaller size is perfect for a wall quilt or table topper.
