    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.

    I love it!! How fun to find it in your SIL's stuff. It makes me think I should work harder to finish my projects so my poor daughters don't have to finish them for me...

    Lovely quilt top, love the checks. The block looks like a drunkard's path with rays on one side. It's not quite grandmother's fan, but I can't find that variation of drunkard's path either. Original to your SIL? Perhaps she could name it drunkard's grandmother, LOL.
