Remember this vintage top? It was given to me by a friend a number of years ago.
I basted it on the long arm last week to prepare for hand quilting.
I’m going to try to pace myself by quilting just one fan per day.
I’m using this giant Baptist fan stencil. It is my favorite for hand quilting. It is available from Barb at Fun With Barb.
I know there are many opinions on this, but I decided to mark with a blue washout marking pen. I’m actually only marking every other arc and eyeballing the arc in between.
I estimate that I will need to make 24 fans to finish this top. If I keep up with one per day, it should be done in three weeks. I’ll plan on four weeks to give my wrist some breaks.
Also, in case you missed it yesterday, the code for 15% off at The Dutch Label Shop is katyquilts15. I will let you all know what I think after I’ve had a chance to wash something with the labels attached.
Have a great day!
