i was inspired by http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=358769.0 by playswithneedles, and thought it would be a perfect gift for a friend's upcoming birthday:


all the fabrics were ones from my stash (trying to use it up slowly but surely...) that went well with her home decor of asian/reds/blacks.  i drafted the pattern on paper and then pieced the fan together:


and then added the center triangle:


i used a black jersey cotton for the batting and backing (to maximize absorbency...)  here are the quilted pieces, ready for binding:


i used 1/2" binding for the edge (tried with 1/4" at first, but it was NOT working, so I ripped it out and switched to 1/2"), and voila the final product:


i made her a set of 4, and hope she likes them!

thanks for looking Smiley
