I posted this picture of a mid-20th-century quilt on my Facebook page, marveling
at how it was constructed---not in block fashion.
The quiltmaker made a relatively simple idea into a piecing extravaganza with the wheels of fans pieced into some white apple core shapes and then there is the x in bright pink.
It would have made a fine block with quarter circle fans in the corners.
I drew it up in EQ8
Print this out at 8" for a 16" block.
I'm not too great at drawing fans but you get the picture.
While we were discussing this I couldn't
find the source for the one above but I did find a similar block.
Again with pink accents.
And then I saw this top on eBay a couple of weeks ago.
I had some trouble drawing the center area.
No source on this one either.
And what is with the pink???
BlockBase has several related designs with quarter circles in the corners but nothing like these three.
Similar pattern structure. See a post here:
