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.
