Twirling Fans

The quilting is coming along for this super fun quilt.  

I decided to do some other fillers around the Twirling Fans.  There are 12 fan blocks and I would love to do 12 different background fillers...problem is I don't know that many.  I think??

...and in the fun diamond shape created, I've decided to add a fun feather motif.

I wanted to answer a couple of questions for you about this quilt.  

This is another fantastic design by Sharon@ Fabrics & Flowers.  You can find out more information about this "Free" pattern here

Now about prairie points.  Yes, I did stitch the prairie points down.  That is what Sharon wanted and frankly I was happy about that!  Although they are fantastic and give a great 3 dimensional look to the quilt....they are a bugger to work with, that is if they are left alone and not stitched down.   They are beautifully in the way all the time and love to catch the quilting foot as it passes by....and that go's for any sort of 3 dimensional nick nack's that may be on a quilt....buttons, the flappy 1/4" binding, beads...and so on.   

Okay...again I was ecstatic when Sharon said to stitch the prairie points down!!

Back at it!
