I have another quilt quilted with the Baptist Fan design to share with you today. This one was made by my husband’s grandmother, Effie. It has lots of wonderful 1930’s fabrics.
I love the string blocks mixed with the 9 patches. This has seen a lot of use and it has been mended here and there. It seems to be quite fragile. The fabrics in some blocks have completely worn away to reveal the batting.
Two corners have been rounded off. I have no idea why! The backing is a plain muslin. It was hand quilted in a frame. You can see on the back that they worked the fans from opposite sides and met in the middle.
