Fan Waves

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Fan Waves quilt block is two blocks in one. It is a nine patch as the centre of an uneven nine patch block. The block features half square triangles and flying geese units, all arranged to make a pinwheel within a star. All in all, this is a wonderful "learning" quilt block.

The two sample quilt layouts illustrated below both use an on point block setting. However, each quilt looks very different from the other. Adding the extra blank blocks and/or setting triangles gives the opportunity for more colour interest and a place to spotlight your quilting skills.
