    Great looking quilt. I love how they all look like suns! I agree that a yellow border would look good. Your dgd is a lucky girl.

    Very beautiful quilt. I agree with using a yellow for the border, it would tie in with the colors a little better than a pink, but that is only my opinion.

    Love the quilt! The colors are wonderful and bright. Inspiration for me to use my scraps and get busy this year.

    I love this quilt! It's bright, simple and happy and - maybe most important - unusual enough to be noticed in a crowd! Your DGD will treasure it.

    I have never seen this pattern before. Lovely. Post again when you attach your borders. Can't wait to see what color you choose.

    I love the gingham. I've always wanted to do a quilt using it. Love the colors in your quilt.

    This is a very unusual fan. Did you sister make this pattern up? Whether she did or not.....this is really cool.

    How big are the squares? Should be able to do them in most sizes if you want to, bot the colors are great and I like the yellow or hot pink like the pink in quilt for binding. Lucky you, enjoy, and maybe your sister whould know the name of the pattern or even have it.

    Very unusual pattern. I like it a lot, and I usually hate gingham! I think it looks more like suns than fans with using some of the same fabrics...must remember that!

    It's a terrific quilt. What a great idea to use just ginghams and solids. Very fun!
