I read the post on scrap quilting and thought I would share this. There are two things to note on this quilt;
1. A Grandmother's Fan pattern is a great way to use scraps. I am very bad at curved piecing so I simply turned the curved edge under and sewed it down. I taught myself later to use one of my machine stitches for machine applique which is what I did for the pansies on the borders.
2. The quilt has a surprise inside! I had an old Ohio Star that was so faded and worn, it was beyond repair but I couldn't throw it out - so I used it as the batting! If anyone ever took this quilt apart, they would find the old quilt inside, which I thought was a neat way to recycle. If you quilt by hand, I wouldn't recommend using the old quilt as a batt - it would be pretty hard to sew - but it machine quilted just fine!
