Fans dance around a center motif in neon colors and intriguing shapes.

Teaching objectives:

  • Explore layered fan shapes
  • Develop ease and confidence with fan stitches by examining the structure of the stitch

Fan shapes manipulated into layers, with a plethora of additional fan shapes, Fantasia pops off the canvas with bright colors and sparkle.

Students who prefer white canvas can also stitch a marvelous design, perhaps with a little less visual impact but still impressive.

Stitches include Chilly Hollow, layered fans, Jessicas, Amadeus, layered crescents, Smyrnas, tear drop crescents, quarter Rhodes, irregular eyelets, and oblong Jessicas.
