Step 2 in "Sweet"

Cut out your pie shaped template, the rip the paper off the paper pieced fan blade. Next, you find the center of the pie shaped wedge and center that on the blades. I then pin from the center out in both directions. Sew a 1/4" seam, going very slow and avoiding hitting the pins. Press seem toward the upper point. It will naturally want to go that direction. This method, however labor intensive is much easier and looks much nicer than hand appliqueing the pie shaped wedge to the fan blade. This quilt is a great skill builder.

Of course, you make everything look so easy. I know, if I were to do this, it would not look so pretty.

Have a great day.

Even though the results are fabulous, I cannot submit myself to that torture. I need easy, quick and satisfying. So there you go, keep it up dear.

Hi Mary- You asked about the name of the quilt I made by Lori Holt- I listed it: "1930's Black and White" is the actual name, not just the style. On Lori's blog she lists 2 quilt stores where you can order her patterns on line. Since this was a pattern from a few years ago, hopefully they have it. If they don't then call Quilts Etc. in Sandy. That's where I originally got the pattern and maybe they still carry it.
I hope this helps.

Mary this is going to be so darling! It was hard to tell from the b&w pattern but these colors look fantastic. Congrats on your Kreative Blogger award. I'm always inspired when I visit your blog!
