Looking for a design to combine with the soft feel of the fan blades, Jean choose a design that could have created a problem if it had stitched in the fan blades. Using the Statler Stitcher and Creative Studio software, if was simply a matter of trimming away all parts of the design that we didn't want. This trimming function created a smooth-stitching design that filled the empty areas perfectly.
This quilt features one of my favorite colors. They called it "cheddar", and that name fits perfectly!
This quilt had a lot of hand work done on it --- all of the tiny fan blades were applied on a white foundation with tiny little hand stitches. You can just barely see them in the close-up:
We added tiny hearts to the narrow green border, and hearts with streamers in the outer green squares. Just the right touch for a feminine feel! Next time you feel like taking a trip down memory lane (even if you weren't around in the 1930's!), consider making one of the various patterns for all of the luscious reproduction fabrics that are currently available!
