For quite a while, I’ve been admiring and drooling over Baptist fans on other quilts posted by other blogs. I’ve even left comments on those blogs that the Baptist fan was something I wanted to try out on a future project. Well, that time has come with this quilt and I am so pleased with the effect. This quilting motif is one that will be used again, for sure!
When you look at the close-up of the quilting, do you see swirling snow … instead of the fans?
When I first showed this quilt as a WIP, Comic Book Lady at http://quiltasdesired.blogspot.com/ thought the scrappy border looked like presents leaning up against each other. I like that thought! Can you imagine having that many presents to open?
I am finding that striped fabric for the binding is fast becoming a favourite choice. I just love it here and I will be going through my stash to find more stripes for future projects.
This quilt is part of our Guild’s UFO Challenge and I’m glad that it’s done.
So, bring on Christmas … my hanging is ready for you!
Have a great day!
