    My name is PeggyAnn, I'm attempting to put a fan block together, and my sister suggested a "teton trail". She found her template for the fan blade and the handle but she doesn't have a template for the "background" part of the block. She said when she took a class a number of years ago that the "instructor" had made templates and that making of the templates were not a part of the class.

    Would anyone be able to give me some advice on how to insert the fan into a background piece to complete a block?

    Many thanks, melopegann

    My fan is on top of a background square and it is set in a corner, outside edges are stitched while joining blocks, and the curve of the fan is appliqued down.

    From when I was a beginner:

    Draw your block on graph paper.
    Label the pieces and cut it apart.
    Add 1/4 inch all the way around each template.

    Hope this helps.

    I think applique is the answer. Use the search button if you need help, it's great. Welcome from England.
