    Then I used my circle cutter to determine the circle I needed was 8 inches. then cut the circle into fourths.

    You can do your curved seam in one of two ways. This is easeing it in.
    Name:  Attachment-279467.jpe

    Resulting in this.

    OR... you can face your 1/4 circle with a light fabric and turn it.

    Sewing the 1/4 circle to the facing.

    Clip the curve and turn.

    Top stitch the 1/4 circle to the bottom of the fan.

    Cut your back and batting. I turned the curved edge of the back over the top of the batting then pinned it to the fan just below the valleys of the points.

    Here you can see the points above the backing and batting.

    Choose your quilting pattern and quilt as desired.

    The point side is finished and you only have to bind the two straight sides turning the ends under on the points. Enjoy!!!

    Wow, great tut, would like to give this a try but don't have a circle cutter, so how do I measure to determine the size circle required? Not to bright in figuring these things out.

    You can use a compass or just take the curve of the bottom of the fan and add 1/2 inch to it.

    Thanks! I was wondering how you did the backing. Very clear and easy to understand, I will have to try this!

    Thanks for the tute and a great idea. I am making 1/2 dresden plate mug rugs and am having a problem at the seam with the small circle that goes in the center as it is only a half dresden plate . Your tute gave me an idea for finishing it.

    Happy Quilting

    I saw your original posting and loved the fan mug rug. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and post the tutorial. I too had a question in your original posting about your backing and appreciate you showing how that was done. Your quilting is fabulous - - feathers in each of the 8 blades!!!

    Also, a GREAT BIG THANKS for posting a picture of your final product at the first part of your tutorial. It is sometimes so frustrating to page through a long tutorial only to realize at the end that it is probably something that I would never do. I think posting a final product picture at the very first is a good thing to do.
