Baptist🪭Fan Quilting

Here are two large quilts that called out for Baptist Fan quilting!!! The first was made by Missy and the second by Karen!
Quilt Info #1:
Maker: Missy
Size: 108" x 108"
Pattern: Brightly by Cluck Cluck Sew
Fabric: William Morris prints
Batting: Quilters Dream 80/20 
Thread: Glide--Linen
Pantograph: Baptist Fan ⤵️ from Three Sisters Fabric
Interesting Info: Missy made this as a gift for a family friend. On a visit to their home, he noticed a quilt Missy had hanging on the wall and he raved over the Baptist Fan quilting, so the quilting design was an easy decision!
These prints are so beautiful!!!
At 108" square, this is the 2nd largest quilt I've quilted on my longarm. The largest was 109" square, very close in size! Both quilts fit on my longarm frame easily. BTW, the largest one was made by Karen, whose quilt I will feature next, although it was not the quilt featured here, but this quilt: Karen's King Size Quilt.
Great job, Missy, persevering to make a king size quilt!!! Beautiful quilt!!!
Quilt Info #2:
Maker: Karen
Size: 93" x 100"
Pattern: Bento Box variation
Batting: Quilters Dream 80/20 
Thread: Glide--Tar Heel
Pantograph: Baptist Fan ⤵️ from Three Sisters Fabric
With so many beautiful prints in this quilt, Baptist Fan adds simple nice texture.⤴️⤵️
Interesting Info: Here's the original block Karen worked with. It's a 2 round Bento Box block. She took some liberty with the blocks after she got comfortable with it!
Extra-wide 108" wide backing is an absolute fav for longarmers! No seams to deal with on the backing!⤵️
Karen based the quilt block and border off a quilt she had seen in my studio, one I had made about 20 years ago. No pattern to go by, just a photo or two, she did a great job at winging it on this beautiful quilt!!!!
Beautiful quilts, quilters!!!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy


  1. Lovely quilts. I just adore Baptist Fan quilting. I really think it's adorable on baby quilts.

  2. Baptist Fan is often over looked for quilting designs but it is a great design. It is the perfect quilting design for both quilts.

  3. I agree that Bapist Fan was the perfect quilting choice so that piecing would remain the focal point. Impeccable work, as always.

  4. I love Missy's quilt. I made one similarly last year but her choice of fabric is so lovely in this quilt. It changes the entire feel of the quilt. Bravo, Missy. I too love the Baptist Fan pattern. It gives the quilt a "grandma's hug" feel to it. Great job! ;^)

  5. Missy's quilt is a beauty, I love these floral prints, very Japanese like. It's a quilt you could have made ;) The Baptist Fan quilt design is perfect for the two of them, and bravo for quilting two huge quilts!
    Thank you for sharing your impeccable work.

  6. Such beautiful big quilts! The Baptist Fan is the perfect quilting design. A friend of mine has done her own version of free hand Baptist Fan on several of my quilts, and it always looks right.

  7. The Baptist Fan is a favorite of mine too although, I have used it only once. . .hmmm I may need to change that! Those are two beautiful quilts. Missy's quilts are both terrific. Her take on the bento box block is out of the box! LOL--TerryK@OnGoingProjects

  8. That Baptist Fan quilting adds gorgeous texture to both quilts! Beautiful work, as always!

  9. I do like the baptist fan panto and it looks great on both quilts. Just shows how versatile it is.
    Both quilts are lovely. Not a bad effort with the king size quilt. That is a lot of work.

  10. Two very different but beautiful quilts, Nancy. Your lovely quilting adds beautiful texture. Baptist Fan is always a lovely pattern.

  11. Oh yes - Baptist Fans was an excellent choice for both quilts. So pretty!! And at 108" so big! Wow!!

  12. Gorgeous!! Yes, the Baptist Fans were definitely a fantastic choice for these two quilts! Thanks for linking up with Monday Musings!

  13. Wow, they are amazing!!! Thanks for sharing and linking up with Monday This and That! xx
