Arrows All Around

I would like to introduce you to Arrows All Around, my sixth pattern. 

I tried some new things with this quilt, it is my first pattern having the blocks on point and my first quilt using Kona Ash instead of White as the background.  I used a bunch of different prints in reds, aquas, blues, and yellows.  This was also my Lovely Year of Finishes for October.

This quilt pattern can be made using basically any type of pre-cut (charm pack, layer cake, jelly roll, fat quarter, fat eighth, quarter yard cuts) and scraps.  The pattern contains detailed instructions and cutting diagrams for each pre-cut size and directions on how to combine various sizes of pre-cuts for the arrows.

I had some wonderful woman to help test and review this pattern: Judy, Paige, and Katy.  These women definitely improved the pattern and my thanks go out to them.

I quilted the quilt in a loopy pattern and backed the quilt with a fun modern sheet I found on sale at Target.

The pattern is now available through etsy and craftsy.

This was also my "A Lovely Year of Finishes" October goal on Bittersweet Designs blog .  Here is my original linkup (on flickr because it was before I started my blog).
