Lady Jane’s Fans

This was first published at Suture for a Living on December 29, 2007.


This is a quilted wall hanging I made back in 1997. It was finished in October of that year. I made it for my friend Jane from her husband’s old ties and shirts. I made four quilts and the Christmas tree skirt for the family. There are four children, all grown now with children of their own. This one is named Lady Jane’s Fans because Dr. McConnell called his wife Lady Jane. He was a big fan of hers. The background of the fan blocks is a woven silk. The sashing and border a checked brown/black corduroy fabric. I hand embroidered each block to add to the Victorian feel.

If you start at the top left of the first row,  this picture is block 1 and 2.

This picture is block 4 and 7 (second row would contain blocks 4-6)

This picture contains block 5 and 8.
This picture contains block 3 and 6.
And this is block 9.
