I paper pieced the fan blades independently, then joined them into a fan. I used interfacing on the curved edges of the blades, so I could sew on the line and invert it to a finished edge. I appliqued the fan to the background squares. I planned some nice fancy quilting in the open areas.
I might actually finish this quilt, if Penny dared me again, but not this year. Actually, next year would be the 10-year mark from 2002. Unbelievable! That may be a good year to finish it!
