Default Anyone know this pattern?

I know this looks simple, but nothing geometric is simple for me! Someone has asked me to make her this pattern, and it is not in my files. Anyone recognize it?

The top and the bottom of the arrow are the same block that you add to the rectangle middle. It is a flying geese block that is added to a rectangle middle to make up the arrow image. The top is made with the color of the main middle fabric as the point of the arrow rectangle and white rectangles added on the corners. The bottom is made with the white rectangle main middle and the colored small rectangles to make the feathered bottom. If you look up the flying geese block on line, you will see how they are made.

From what I can tell, you add sashing and a small square in between to give the illusion of space in between the arrows.

If you look closely, there is a seam right down the middle of each coloured arrow. If you used graph paper, you could make your own pattern.

It looks to me like it began with 2-1/2" strips, and the points might even be HSTs, but the intervals don't seem uniform. Maybe it is just an illusion in the photo. I should be able to graph it out easily, or even use cut pieces of paper to get the proportions (my brain does not actually do geometry). Thanks for the ideas!

Beautiful quilt that should be pretty easy to graph out. HST's and strips looks to be all it is. \
