Meet Fanny! We adore the pops of primary colors on this vibrant and summery quilt top. The fan quilt pattern first appeared in print in a Ladies Art Company catalog of 1897. Prior to that, fans were common motifs in late nineteenth century crazy quilts. Their popularity likely was due to the fad for decorating in the Japanese style, which was prompted by Americans' exposure to Japanese art at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. By the 1930s, fans were a standard favorite for quilt patterns.

Quilt tops are worthwhile investments because they embody the quilter's artistic vision, creativity, and craftsmanship, showcasing intricate patterns and carefully selected fabrics that set the aesthetic foundation for the finished quilt. Despite being unfinished, we believe a quilt top holds significant value due to the substantial time, precision, and skill required to create it. We think they are stunning on their own, or you could also use them as a framed piece, folded across the end of a bed, shower curtain, window covering, or tablecloth in your home. 

The beauty of quilt tops is that they offer flexibility, allowing the variability to either complete the quilting process or collaborate with another quilter to finish it according to your preferences. Quilt tops hold personal or historical significance, capturing memories, stories, or cultural heritage, making them meaningful and treasured pieces.
