Arrowhead Block Revolutionized

Lori sent me a link to a pattern today, it is Anita's Arrowhead from Rotary Cutting Revolution by Anita Grossman Solomon. Lori said
"you will like this pattern--its a "you" pattern. "
as always she is right, (I have to say that or she will beat me up.) Seriously I do like the pattern and it is a revolutionary technique, not paper pieced. I can't abide picking out all the bits of paper! All I can say is the designer, Anita, has a very different thinking process to the rest of us. but it works.

I found a series of blog posts about the block on the Quiltmaker blog, and here is the link to a free download of the pattern too. This color combination caught my eye. If you are wondering about the spinning mat the blogger is pining for we have them at the Blue Sheep very reasonably priced.

I bought some parrot green batik a few years ago to make my daughter a quilt, I don't know what I was thinking (probably that the fabric was very expensive) but I didn't buy much and the color is impossible to match. Obviously the solution is not to match but to contrast. I will dig it out and scan it, soon. The pictured quilt above is from the book, mine would have to be a bit bigger. The kid has a huge bed, acres to cover.

Y'all come back!
