Blogger's Quilt Festival - Arrow Point Path



It's that time of the year again...each fall, Amy, who blogs over at Amy's Creative Side, hosts the Blogger's Quilt Festival on her blog.  We are allowed to link up two quilts and have the opportunity to visit and be inspired by other blogger's wonderful quilts.  

My second entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival is Arrow Point Path, a quilt I made for Quilt Theory.  Quilt Theory was formed back in February 2016 from tight-knit group of like-minded quilters collaborating to create simple and modern quilt patterns.  All of our patterns are printed on 4"x6" cards (also available on 1 page pdfs) and we will be releasing our third collection in just about a month.

Arrow Point Path has a really fun design that is created using a simple block that is repeated and rotated within the quilt top.  My son said that he really liked the design because it made his eyes do funny things :)

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.

  1. Ooh! I love Arrow Point Path! I actually made that quilt top using a mix of purple-on-purple fabrics, and I haven't gotten around to quilting it yet because, well, I love it so much there's that fear of messing it up! Great pattern Cheryl, and I love how Quilt Theory's quilt patterns are so reasonably priced!
