This is the tute for the fan mug rug.

Finished result
attachment-279451.jpe

Start with wedges. These are 9 Degree, but any will work
attachment-279452.jpe

Fold the top in half and sew across.
attachment-279453.jpe

Turn them inside out and iron. Make sure the seam is in the middle.
attachment-279454.jpe

I opened my seams inside of the point.
attachment-279455.jpe

Obviously wrong for example only.
attachment-279456.jpe

Sew together matching the points.
attachment-279459.jpe

Sew the pairs into foursies. I open my seams.
attachment-279460.jpe

Finally fours in to eights. There ate two fans here.
attachment-279463.jpe

Then I used my circle cutter to determine the circle I needed was 8 inches. then cut the circle into fourths.
attachment-279465.jpe

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

Resulting in this.
attachment-279469.jpe

OR... you can face your 1/4 circle with a light fabric and turn it.
attachment-279470.jpe

Sewing the 1/4 circle to the facing.
attachment-279471.jpe

Clip the curve and turn.
attachment-279472.jpe

Top stitch the 1/4 circle to the bottom of the fan.
attachment-279473.jpe

Resulting in this.
attachment-279474.jpe

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.
attachment-279475.jpe

Here you can see the points above the backing and batting.
attachment-279476.jpe

Choose your quilting pattern and quilt as desired.
attachment-279480.jpe

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.
