Twilt Tuesday – Fan Dance

Posted in Cathedral Windows, Twitter Quilts...Twilts tagged , , , , at 7:59 AM by Shelley Swanland

Tuesday’s are going to be Twilt day. It will keep me motivated to make at least one Twilt a week unless someone else makes one and I can use theirs. This week you get both.

Jes from I’m so Happy has made her first Twilt, “Lisa and the Sky of Diamonds” and it’s lovely and has a significant sentiment. Check it out on her Blog. I think she might be starting another too.   

Fan DanceMine is just a simple piece that uses bias curves to create little fans. I created a little foundation paper pieced fan and than basted the folded squares on top so that I would have bias folds to make the curves.

“Fan Dance”

What do you think?

    Dear Shelley,

    I think Fan Dance is beautiful and very artistic!

    Well, you got me going through my fabrics and
    patterns! I showed a friend the Twilts and she
    asked if I’d do one in flowers……so, I’m thinking

    Thank you for the inspiration!
    I love Star Puzzle!

    Fan dance is incredible! I don’t know what you mean but bias folds to make curves. What is that?

    • Hi Cayce,
      If you fold a square in half diagonally, the fold is on the bias and stretchy and can be easily folded back, like a Cathedral Window.
