I am not crazy about the 30s reproduction fabrics - though I actually really love the newer much brighter ones, less "pastelly." But back at some point I did purchase a bunch of fat-quarters of the fabrics. To also date the blocks, I made a about 20 fan blocks and then bought some solid pastels to go with them. I didn't have a plan for them at first, but in the fall of 2004, my sister-in-law Sallie was diagnosed with breast cancer so I made her this quilt, using eight of the blocks and some "quilt for the cure" fabric somebody gave me. I hoped it might help keep her warm and comfortable through the chemo.
