How do you go about marking for a Baptist fan pattern? Do you mark the whole quilt and then quilt it? I would think you would have to, since you couldn't just mark as you go if you start in the center.
And where can I find templates for a Baptist fan, or how could I go about making one?
Thanks ladies (and gentlemen)!
Bonnie, have you looked at Bonnie Hunter'st Baptist Fan tutorial? She has some fans drawn out on paper. Everything I have read about them is to keep them at an odd number and about an inch apart. It was one of those quilting designs that you start at the outer corner and built upon. Pepper Cory also sells a stencil for a baptist fan.
Bonnie, I went back and found the website. http://www.pieceful-moments.blogspot.com/2008/04/successful-bishop-...
This woman shows how she drafts the fans and I felt it was a very good instruction with pictures. Hope this helps
