    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,

    For a 12” finished Anita’s 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.

    -Anita
