    Grandmothers fan-quilted by myself on long arm

    Not too long ago, I found grandmother fan pieces at a rummage sale for $5. I placed them on muslin and pieced them together. I finally got my long arm and just got it quilted and bound yesterday. I am practicing on my feathers and also my straight edge quilting. I think it turned out pretty well. When you go to rummage sales, you will be surprised at the little treasures you may find. These granny fans were in a ziplock.....I have some black ones that I bought for $5 also, just haven't got them made yet.

    You would not believe how long it took me to figure out a layout. I was web surfing for any grandmother fan layout, because there were only so many of the fans, and I couldn't replace any of the fabric. I believe most of them were from the 60s. Anyway, thank you so much. I love that particular layout, I just wish I could have had some for the corners.

    You turned those found blocks into a very pretty quilt. What a great piece to practice your quilting on. It came out great.
