Quilt Theory ++ Arrow Point Path

I am excited to be able to share some secret sewing and a new project with you today... (and a giveaway at the end of this post :)

I would like to introduce Arrow Point Path, my quilt pattern for the 2nd pattern collection of Quilt Theory. Arrow Point Path is a lap sized, fat quarter friendly pattern that combines beginner level piecing into a strong geometric design. The cover quilt was made in solids but would look great in prints too. In fact, I have a second version in the works using some Densye Schmidt prints.

Many thanks to Michael Miller for providing the beautiful Cotton Couture solids and to Aurifil for supplying the thread for the piecing and quilting.

I quilted Arrow Point Path in an swirl/paisley type design using 40wt white (color 2024) Aurifil thread.  I liked the effect of using the 40wt (versus my usual go to 50wt) because it made the quilting stand out just a bit more to give the quilt some good texture.

Our goal at Quilt Theory is to create simple and modern quilt patterns, and we design collections of patterns printed on small cards and one-page PDFs. As a group, we have become a strong team as we worked through writing, testing, editing, and quilting the patterns in our collection.

For our second collection, we challenged ourselves to write patterns that utilize precut bundles of fabric. We hope you find a lot of inspiration in our collection to make quilts from your favorite bundles in your stash.

Where to Buy

PDF patterns are available now through our website QuiltTheory.com. Pattern cards coming soon to a local quilt shop near you! Let your local quilt shop know you want them to carry Quilt Theory patterns.

  14. Really like this pattern. Looking for a not too feminine design for a quilt for my son. I could use this one with a slightly more masculine color palette. Whoo Hoo
