Paper Piecing Party – Arrows

 My beautiful friend Gina is Queen Wombat this month in our paper piecing bee Wombat Stew. G requested arrows, feathers or geese. I saw a block she pinned of arrows that I absolutely loved – but when I went searching, the pattern was regularly pieced. Well that just won’t do. It’s paper piecing or GTFO. So. Naturally I drew up my own paper pieced version.

Four Arrows

I absolutely love how this block came together. I designed the pattern for single arrows, but they are so versatile you could use them for a border or in a block like this.

Pink and Aqua Arrows

Here’s my IG progress shot. You can better see the low volume Bike Path print I used for the background. I’m kinda loving these.Easy to piece too (ok so maybe one or two little angles but eh, that’s not so bad). I used lots of favourite fabrics in these arrows – pearl bracelets, Sketch, Wee Wander.. such pretties. Can’t wait to see how you put your quilt together G!

So if you’re loving the arrows and want to paper piece them, you can now find the pattern listed in my Craftsy shop. Hurrah!

Otherwise, please, feel free to share what paper piecing fun you have been up to this week.

  9. I love the feathers on your arrows. I can't imagine having to piece arrows the regular way. I think I'd give up before they were finished!
