Project

Fans-O'-Geisha

What are you most proud of? How well the blocks came out. The one that I indicated is my favorite looks like you're looking down on a city of skyscrapers. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I cut my blocks into 4 1/2" strips and then made 4 1/2" blocks which I then cut into half square triangles. instead, I'd cut a 9 inch block going forward and do the sub cutting so that I don't end up with bias edges. The bias edges made the blocks harder to make sure they were all the same size. Of course that goes for all pinwheel quilts for me as I go forward. =)

You Can Make This

Lizluvsquilting made Fans-O'-Geisha with:

  • The blocks and border are the same Japanese Geisha fabric. The repeat is about 24 inches which works great for Kaleiodescope quilts.

patz in suffolk asked:
I love it! Is that "Stack'n'Whack?", or something else? Whatever it is, it's gorgeous! Well done!
Lizluvsquilting answered:
Thanks Pat. She didn't have the Stack n Whack book or use that term, but I believe it's the same concept.
