Fanny Lulu Fanny Lulu’s Fans is a 4-color, 5-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 72 x 72 inches. The Fans look a little like a New York Beauty because of the top arc with points.

This design uses the Inklingo Dresden Plate Fancy Pieced Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana by Northcott.

Yes, I really had a cousin named Fanny Lulu. [poor child!] She is a first cousin 3x removed in my Williamson line. Up until a few days ago I thought she had died in 1887 at age 26 never having married. This according to information on a FindAGrave.com memorial. I wanted to know how she died so I went to the interment records for the cemetery where she was supposedly buried only to find it’s not her. [sigh] Apparently when the FindAGrave memorial was first established it was for a Fannie Williamson who died in 1887. But according to the death record information in the interment books, that Fannie was 32 in 1887—not 26—so it’s unlikely that it’s my Fanny Lulu. When an enthusiastic—but not record conscious—genealogist asked to take over the memorial, she apparently changed the name of the memorial and added Fanny Lulu’s family info. I will have to search out Fanny Lulu’s whereabouts in the 1892 New York Census and beyond. I hope she got married and had a boat-load of kids.
