Just before Christmas, I came across the Anita’s Arrowhead pattern.
The block is created through a very clever cutting technique starting with the squares: one light and one dark. At the moment the pattern is still FREE to download.
I really liked working with this new type of block construction. Very inspiring!
The pattern starts with two 8 inch squares and the block you end up with is 9×9.
Well, I didn’t… I had to cut down the block a tad bit to 8,5 inches, but I was fine with that. I think that the fabric that I was using is a little bit thicker than quilting cotton and with every seam I was losing width of the fabric. Oh well, I still really liked the outcome!
I will be using the pattern again!
Again, trying to get rid of all the pink fabric from my local-market-fabric-stash!
This next photo shows the colours the best:
Just went wild with feather shapes in the quilting!

I have make lots of baby quilts these last couple of weeks. Just click through my previous posts to view them!
