Part 2: Citrus Improv Sky

How to Make the Yellow Improv Fan Sky
Please read through all instructions before beginning. If you have questions: email

Sky blocks are due before our September 10 Sew-In.

Use this color shown as Kona Citrus.

A small amount of Kona White may be added to these blocks.

Rough-cut two squares or rectangles in the size of your choosing. Stack them with right sides together. Cut as shown, being sure to allow slightly more than 1/2" width (for seam allowances) at the narrowest end.

Repeat with additional fabrics. You may also cut wedges from 2-1/2" wide jelly roll fabric, or scraps. Arrange as desired. 

Also make fan "blades" from fabric scraps. 

Press open seam allowances. 

Trim fan blades along the sides, so blades may be sewn to one another. 

Arrange as desired. 

Press open seam allowances. Note: it's helpful to spray starch when pressing. Use Faultless or Mary Ellen's Best Pressed.

Make fans in a variety of sizes.

Do not trim blocks to square up! Leave all edges uncut.
