    blue bandana and leopard print-WOW

    Hi to all, It has been so long since I posted anything, but I have been busy. The other day, I ran across some blue bandanas, about 20 inches square, and decided that I must do something with them. I had just gotten the Anita's Arrowhead pattern, and after doing a practice block, decided that I could get 4 blocks from 1 bandana, so I paired it with some leopard print, because this will be a man's quilt, and here is a single block and then 4 blocks lain together.

    This next picture is 4 blocks together. Yup, it is bold, but manly.

    Now, to find time to work on this one, in addition to the other 5, I am also working on. This is such a fun and easy pattern, I will probably use it more than once.

    I never thought to post a picture of a bandana, for those who would not know what I was talking about, so here it is.

    I was able to get 4 squares from one bandana, and I think that I have about 8 of them, so will end up with a 5x6 block, which square at 9 inches. I will do some borders to finish it, I think.

    Yes, the pattern is free. Just google Anita's arrowhead, and on the website, and I am not good at copy/paste or I would have done that, but there is a pdf file which you can print out. Very good directions, and quick to sew up. Good luck.

    Very sharp looking. I would not have thought to pair bandannas with the animal print, but they look fantastic together. I made that pattern a couple of years ago with vintage christmas prints. You are so right, it is really a fun block to make!
