Baptist Fan Quilting

I've quilted 3 quilts for Jackee B using Baptist Fan Groovy Boards. This classic quiling pattern looks great on almost any quilt! The first quilt is simply pieced log-cabin style using a variety of floral fabrics.

The 2nd quilt is for Quilts of Valor. The center block is a wonderful focal point. It isn't as complicated to piece as it look!. Jackee did a great design job as she surrounded it with red and blue and neutral string blocks.

The 2nd string quilt is made of scrappy blocks, each one a riot of color. I love the black and white borders! I also like how Jackee varied the piecing, some diagonal, some parallel. This small piecing variation makes the quilt appear more complex that it is! The fan quilting curves soften the straight piecing lines.

The quilting lines show up best on the black and white back.
