Fan-o-rama

How's that for a silly title?  Well, I'm running on empty at this hour, what can I say.  I should be doing the final round of shoulder exercises before bed, but I just can't anymore tonight.  

Physical therapy wasn't bad on Wednesday, but the two things the therapist added to my existing regimen seem as much aggravating to the shoulder as they may be helpful.  Hoping the soreness will calm down soon.  Anyway, it's been a busy day, and then I had a brewski about an hour ago and that pretty much sapped my will to check anything else off the to-do list.

However, earlier today I finished a quilt top.  Ta-da!

I like how it turned out, all diagonally squiggly and such in this setting.  It's about 60 x 70 (-ish), which makes a nice throw or kid sized quilt.

This project started as a way to use an older fabric my sister had given me.  I used an EZ Dresden ruler to cut the pieces, then switched them up into grandmother's fan type blocks. 

I will not be naming this quilt Fan-o-rama.  Other suggestions are welcome, however.

How about calling it Vintage Modern Fans? Meh. It's late here and I'm running on empty too. Still stumped on what to call my Drunkard's Path. Hey, that sparked something silly - Drunkard's Fans. Yeah. I'm full of all kinds of little gems tonight.

On to the stuff I'm certain about. That quilt is amazing. I love the pretty diagonal pattern, the colors, everything. Yep. This is an awesome quilt!

Just curious, but isn't beer made from barley? I was pondering on this recently and wondered if certain types of alcohol (beer and scotch were what came to mind) off-limits to the gluten-free population?

Your quilt top is just Fan-Tastic! Great job, Paulette!

Drunkards fans for sure! Love that suggestion. Good luck with PT. My Mom has just been through five weeks post hip replacement, she is a new woman, which is good for all of us. :)

this quilt looks like a kaleidoscope kind of to me. Great job!

Hope your shoulder heals soon.

I haven't ventured into curves yet...yours look great! And apparently post-shoulder surgery, too! Visiting from Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Hope PT is working for you P! I LOVE the quilt, and love how you changed each row with the greens, and reds. As for a name.....how about...."My Sister's Fanny?"
