Start with wedges. These are 9 Degree, but any will work

Fold the top in half and sew across.

Turn them inside out and iron. Make sure the seam is in the middle.

I opened my seams inside of the point.

Obviously wrong for example only.

Sew together matching the points.

Sew the pairs into foursies. I open my seams.

Finally fours in to eights. There ate two fans here.

Then I used my circle cutter to determine the circle I needed was 8 inches. then cut the circle into fourths.

You can do your curved seam in one of two ways. This is easeing it in.

Resulting in this.

OR... you can face your 1/4 circle with a light fabric and turn it.

Sewing the 1/4 circle to the facing.

Clip the curve and turn.

Top stitch the 1/4 circle to the bottom of the fan.

Cut your back and batting. I turned the curved edge of the back over the top of the batting then pinned it to the fan just below the valleys of the points.

Here you can see the points above the backing and batting.

Choose your quilting pattern and quilt as desired.

The point side is finished and you only have to bind the two straight sides turning the ends under on the points. Enjoy!!!

    If they were made a little larger they would make great placemats for a round table. Great tut--thanks for posting.
