Here's another newly finished quilt. This one was started in Gwen Marston's Beaver Island Quilt Retreat last fall. I started doing the free hand fans, but was stymied by the needle I was using and put it away for several months. By the time I got it out again I had discovered a better needle for me so the multiple layers and frequent seams weren't as much of a problem.
I may now be addicted to free hand fans. On this one, the first row at the bottom was pretty regular. After that I went a little more free form and just started adding new fans wherever I liked. This loose style fits the quilt better and is more fun to do!
I embroidered my initials, the date of the retreat and the initials for Beaver Island Quilt Retreat in the corners. I haven't come up with a name for this one yet.
