does this block come in her book or just the magazine.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
This block and many more are in her book Revolutionary Rotary Cutting. Everytime I open it, I seem to see something new! She's amazing, and it's all very easy.
I tried it but I have a lot of learning on this one.
I think I would press my seams open.
And a bigger square too.
I really like this block.
thanks for the tutorial on it.
Anita recommends to press the seams open. It makes the block easier to sew together and it lays flat. I have a pile of cut squares next to my machine and I sew around the squares when I want to sew for a few minutes. I take a stack of sewn squares to my sew day workshop to cut and sew back together. It's a very easy to go project.
I have learned so much from this group.
The first block I tried with no starch.
Well, the second, third and the rest I will use starch what a difference that makes.
Thanks to a bunch of wonderful people on this board. :thumbup:
I'm glad there is no quilt police here on this board too.

Hi, On the Anita Arrowhead block, what size block would I start with to get a finshed 12 1/2 inch block? TY
Hi,Originally Posted by puddles
For a 12 finished Anitas Arrowhead:
Mathematically -Cut two 10-3/8 squares, sew the Ό seams and then make the diagonal and 2-5/8 cuts.
Realistically - Cut two 10.5 squares, sew the Ό seams and then make the diagonal and 2-3/4 cuts.
One of the reasons I stuck to the 8 2 combo is because I could use either fat or long quarter yards efficiently and the numbers are easy to remember.
