    That's it! I was trying to think of what the material looked like. Antique hankies!

    Leesa,

    What fabric did you use for the S&W/fans?

So, I just quilted around the fans and then tacked them with embrodiery thread through the center. It made them look kinda like the little tassles that used to hold the old fans together. I don't know if you can see them in these photos or not. See what you think.
    BEAUTIFUL QUILT - your work is really lovely. :lol:

    Beautiful. Such a great idea to use stack and wack for a fan pattern.

    I'm not a fan of stack and wack, but I have to tell you this is just beautiful. It almost has a vintage look to it. Great job!

    I don't think I've ever seen a stack and wack fan. That's really pretty. I'm a hand quilter and I can imagine how difficult it would be to go through something that turned hard on you. I guess lesson learned. Try it out on one first, before you make them all.
