    looking for pattern for "arrows" quilt

    I recently saw a darling baby quilt. It had blocks of 4 arrows, pointing in different directions.

    It was of 4 primary colors, the center of the block was a four patch. The next round were like flying geese, pointing all four directions.

    Have you seen this pattern? I have googled and did a tutorial search and come up empty handed for this block.

    Here's a link. It's probably not the one you are looking for but it is cute.

    Scroll down a wee bit.

    If this is the quilt you're looking for, the design was inspired by Follow the Arrows, the cover quilt from the Fall 2009 issue (#105) of Quick Quilts Magazine (p. 26).

    Neither of those, but both are cute. I think if I got out some fabric, I could figure it out, but a pattern or picture would help.

    four patch in center and arrows point away from the center.

    I purchased a pattern from the blog site called "A little bit biased" she made an arrow quilt for her son. Its really a cute pattern -don't know if that is the one you are looking for. I do remember seeing a free pattern for an arrow quilt recently but I cannot remember where. Good luck.

    This one? If 2 of the smaller blocks were turned around, it would have a 4-patch and all arrows pointing out.

    ETA: oops, the arrows would point in. But you could easily move the squares to reverse that.

    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

    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.
