Crazy Quilt with Corner Fans


I made this crazy quilt with silk fans in the corners about 10 years ago. My Mom crocheted the little white fan in the photo below. She made it for this quilt. She also taught me how to embroider about 50 years ago, and I'm so glad she did. I love to embroider on quilts. Beads make it nice to run your hands over the surface of the quilt too. You know what I'm going to say: click here to see how to make fans.

I wish I'd known about fan corners long ago. These are wonderful and so are many you've shown us lately.

Simply incredible! All those beads, all that beautiful work and something special your mom made to add to it.

I'm loving all these fan quilts, thank you so much for sharing them with us.
