Eye Candy for Possible Class!

I want to offer a "fans from ties" (Let's Tie One On) class this summer at the thread shop as an exercise in building seams and fancy stitching.  So for display in the thread shop today I assembled this wall hanging from an RR years ago.  The stitchers included Cathy K., Cobi W., Bonnie W., and Leslie E.

There was another one in the series and I'm using it on a journal cover.  I had to do some searching in the barn to find all the trim.  I love my barn.. I can always find something wonderful plus fabulous things I didn't even remember  I had..  I will add more lace which I have on order to finish it off.







The blocks went out looking like this.


Now that it's  finished I wish I had did it lengthwise with half fans... too late now. Oh Well!!!

I have never worked fans but looking at these it has made me want to make some. Red, orange and yellow are my favourite colours so these really appeal to me.

The fans are so pretty. Your wall hanging certainly should inspire people to sign up for a class. DH and Chevy just got home from their walk so I have to go make porridge. We've had 2 days in a row where we haven't gone down to less than freezing over night - yay!

They look just gorgeous! You know I love fans anyway, but these are really super. It should fill a class in no time! I really like the one with the spider webs in the corner ..... great idea.

Great idea! If I came across that quilt hanging in the shop, I'd sign up for class in a heartbeat!!!
