This afghan looks like a Grandmother’s Fan quilt. It uses 5 colors, a main background color, and 4 contrasting colors to create fans. Twenty-four 12 inch squares (1 fan per square) are assembled to make the afghan.

The amounts of yarn needed to create a blanket like the one in the book are approximately:

2550 yards of a main color and
680 yards each of 4 contrasting colors.

Gauge: Each square = 12 inches
