Cupid’s Arrows will Fly in February

Posted by on February 1, 2015 in housekeeping | Comments Off on Cupid’s Arrows will Fly in February

In February, I reveal the second block size we will be making this year: a long 4 1/2 by 18 inch (finished size) rectangle.

I made this one.


Looking forward, in 2015, there will be 8 square 9 inch blocks and 4 long rectangular blocks with these dimensions.

This block offers the opportunity to work with skinny strips, make half-square triangles and use snowball corners to create angular shapes.

The fabric guidelines and directions for making the block are here:

Arrow Block Pattern

Note that you can use any shade of blue for your SKY fabric, but will want to choose an ARROW fabric (black, white or black & white) that will have good contrast.

You may make a maximum of 9 blocks for chances in the drawing at the end of the month. The target set size for the winners will be 48 blocks.

Sorry – No Virtual Quilt

As some of you are aware, my computer at home has been unusable and, although I did try, I couldn’t manage the logistics of creating virtual blocks from sneak peeker photos to create the virtual quilt this month.

So I decided to go low-tech and pull out the colored pencils and show you one idea for using these blocks.
