    Grandmas Fan

    I inherited all my SIL's quilting since she is no longer able to quilt. I found this handmade top in her stash. I am going to put a pink border on it with cornerstones and quilt it.
    It will make a great quilt for my DGD when she learns her colors.
    I will repost when (ever) I finish quilting it.

    This is absolutely adorable, simple and a delight. But a pink border? May I suggest a yellow instead.
    My fabric talks to me.

    wow! That is so unique and beautiful! The colors are awesome! I think it looks like lots and lots of beautiful sunshines and that makes me smile I think a pink border will be nice. You certainly inherited a treasure.

    That is an unusual grandmother's fan. A keeper.
