Notes: The fan-shaped design is a composite based on three fan quilts owned by Betty Sharp. The fan blades resemble the print material her mother ”Cappy” always used in piecing quilt-tops. Blue is used as the focal point because this was Cappy’s favorite color. This quilt block is the first one in the county designed by use of stenciling, stamping, and free hand drawing. Also, every paint color found in all of the previously built quilt squares was used to create the “fabric” in this pattern
