    Drafted my own arrow block

    After a lot of looking on my own and with the help of board members, I was unable to come up with the block I had in mind. So with the help of graph paper, I made my own.

    It is a four patch in the center, flying geese around. The flying geese have a 1 1/2" strip added to each end to make the arrow point correctly. It measures 8 1/2" unfinished.

    I thank all that helped, I did find some cute arrow quilts with your help.

    There is one that Anitia Grossman Solomon did for Quiltmaker magazine I think in 2011. Also on this forum she commented on it so maybe you can still find it. It is called Anitia's Arrowhead and was a wonderfully easy technique. If you got the colors right I think this might work for you

    ETA: oops, the arrows would point in. But you could easily move the squares to reverse that.
    I really like this block. It would make a good scrap quilt right? Can anyone help me with the "recipe" for the cutting and piecing. Would it be cute with many different fabrics making the arrows but one "constant" background fabric for the frame of the block?

    That is too cute. I have some perfect fabrics for that. Another good idea for the future.
