M-9 Fan Dance

M-9 Fan Dance
I have been looking forward to making this block. Something about it just gets me. It's pretty fantastic. I paper pieced it, and am happy to see that the points aren't too bad. The fabric is from the Granary, but I don't know the name. It's a Christmas fabric, and the line had a fantastic panel with a partridge in a pear tree.

Growing up Chinese, I have seen many fan dances, although I never participated in one. They look so graceful, and I think I'm more of a jock than a dancer.

Your Dear Jane blocks are wonderful. I just love the fabrics you have chosen.

This block makes me smile. It's a lovely pattern and does seem to emulate a graceful fan dance.

very pretty! The blue and white look so classic together. You are really cranking away at should do another update of your Dear Jane collage thing
