Modern Block Monday - Arrows

My habit to spend 20 minutes a day quilting is getting tested, but I finished these two arrow blocks for Sheila in my Canadians Quilt Bee so there's some progress. It uses Carla's great tutorial

Note to self (and anyone else who is interested): If you do the strips longer at around 24", then you can get two sets of arrow tails out of the strip. It took me a while to wrap my head around this block, but I really enjoyed making them in the end. 



Will definitely be making more of these...

  2. Wonderful! Yes, once you make 1 you can play around with what works for you ; )
    Also, making two identical strip sets allows you to cut several tail feathers in one direction and several in the other.
    Thanks for sharing!
