HELLO, EVERY ONE.
PLEASE FORGIVE THE ALL CAPS IT IS EASIER FOR ME TO READ.
I HAVE NEVER BEEN ONE TO POST QUESTION, SOME TIMES I WILL TELL YOU IF I LIKE SOME THING YOU SAID OR MADE BUT MOST OF MY TIME HERE IS SPENT READING OR RESEARCHING . NOW I CAN'T FIND THE INFORMATION I NEED SO I AM TURNING TO YOU ...MY PERSONAL GROUP OF EXPERTS!
WAY BACK IN THE 1930'S THERE WAS A QUILT CALLED CLEOPATRA'S FAN . IT IS WHAT I WOULD CALL ART DECO OR ARTSY. I HAVE ATTACHED A LINK BELOW TO THE R.KAUFMAN WEBSITE WHERE YOU CAN FIND AN UPDATED VERSION . THE PATTERN IS FREE AND IS STILL A PIECED VERSION. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL 1930S BLOCK AND PATTERN. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE A FOUNDATION PIECE VERSION AND STILL KEEP THE 9.5 FINISHED BLOCK. ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE WILL BE APPRECIATED.
DEBI - CLEOPATRA'S FAN IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL PATTERN. iT PROBABLY IS EASIER THAN IT LOOKS, ESP. IF YOU PAPER PIECE IT,. I WAS JUST TALKING WITH MY HAIRDRESER JUST A MONTH OR SO AGO AND I FOUND MANY EXAMPLES OF IT ON PINTEREST.
I'M AFRAID I AM NOT MUCH HELP WITH CONVERTING TEMPLATES TO FOUNDATION. MAYBE SOMEONE WHO HAS EQ COULD COME UP WITH AN IDEA. IF I WAS DOING IT I WOULD SIMPLY PASTE THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS TOGETHER AS THEY SHOW IT IN THE PATTERN, AND COPY IT; NUMBER THE ORDER TO PP IT AND OFF YOU GO. IT REALLY SHOULDN'T BE TOO DIFFICULT. I KNOW, EASIER SAID THAN DONE. I MAY GIVE IT A TRY LATAER ON AND SEE HOW IT COMES OUT.
I was just looking at the pattern. The pieces are curved so I'm not sure it would be easily adaptable to foundation piecing without considerable re-working to straight lines. That would change the look quite a bit.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
I just had to play with this. I think the Cleopatra's Fan is a beautiful block but I wouldn't want to deal with the templates and curves. I changed the curved lines to straight lines. Looks different but it's a possibility for paper piecing.
I have never heard of this pattern but looked it up and it is beautiful. good luck with trying to convert to foundation piecing . I have no clue .. Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Judy ,looks to me like you did a fantastic job on the conversion . looks good and I'd USE IT .Barbara
