I'm excited to be putting the finishing touches on four new patterns, all of which will be available in my pdf pattern shop on Monday, August 4.
The first quilt I'd like to show you is Pointy.
Pointy features conventionally-pieced patchwork arrows. The pattern includes directions for making a large (67" x 80") quilt with 24 arrows or a small (35" x 35") quilt with 5 arrows.
Each finished (without seam allowance) arrow block measures 4-1/2" x 30-1/2".
The arrowheads and feathers can be made using 1/1-2" x WOF strips and 5" x 5" charm squares or 9" x 21" fat eighths. Please check out the pattern listing for more details.
For my quilt (which is the large version) I used Skinny Strips and Charm Squares of Kona Cotton Solids in My Designer Palette. The background is Essex yarn-dyed linen blend in Indigo.
You can see photos that I took during the process of making my quilt and some of the amazing projects my pattern testers have been making by searching #pointyquilt on Instagram.
For the quilt back, I made a gigantic pixelated heart using more charm squares in the same color palette. You'll see several versions of the pixelated heart on the backs of the quilts I'll be showing this week, and a free pattern for making the hearts will be available on my blog next week.
In the meantime, I'm doing a giveaway! One randomly-selected commenter will win a copy of the pdf pattern, plus one package each of Skinny Strips and Charm Squares in my Kona Designer Palette to get him or her started on the quilt. To enter, just leave a comment on this post between now and Sunday, August 3. A winner will be announced when the patterns go on sale Monday, August 4.
