FANS WITH EMBROIDERED SEAMS, turquoise wool
A rich and unusual aqua color enlivens this traditional pattern. The strips forming the fans are many different fabrics from the scrap bag, among them printed floral wool challis. Together with the several different crazy quilt type stitches that anchor and outline the fan shapes, this composition harks back to 19th century quiltmaking traditions.
