    Grandma's Fan Quilt Pattern

    I recently viewed a picture of a five blade fan quilt made from old handkerchiefs. The points of the fan blade are the corners from the hankies so they already have a finished edge on them. Does anyone have a pattern I could use to make this quilt? Thanks for your help.

    I don't have a pattern, but since you are using old handkerchiefs, couldn't you just use a Dresden Ruler and make the blades the length you want them to be? You can get the dresden ruler at Joann's. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for letting me know about the Dresden Ruler. I had tried my quilt shop and they did not carry it. I will check out JoAnn's. If you Google Kay'z Quiltz: My Quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival-A Handkerchief Grandmother's Fan you should be able to find the pictures. Thanks for the info.

    Any Suggestions?

    Any suggestions on a handerchief fan quilt using only white hankies for the blades? My sister has hankies from her Great Aunt that were all in while. We are trying to think of a way to use them in a quilt.
