Cleopatra’s Fan

Description of Class

This beautiful and versatile quilt block may look difficult because of the curved lines, but in this class students will be able to create this unique quilt block and learn many different layouts.

This class will focus on creating sixteen 12” blocks. The focus will be on using die cuts to create these blocks, but information about plastic templates or paper patterns will be given.

Note: There is left over fabric using the cutter because of curves and layouts, so you will have scraps left over. Layout will be 48” if placing blocks on point. Adding setting triangles to each block increases the quilt by about 50%! Borders will determine the finished size of your quilt. Table runner size is determined by layout chosen.

Students should pre-cut fabric ahead of class as listed under Cutting Instructions / Pre-work.
