I first made this little Arrow drops baby quilt when I was working with my Henna fabrics and the concept has since evolved. It uses a method I dreamed up to piece the triangles completely randomly and without cutting lots of pieces out. Its quite clever if I do say so myself – and I do!
Its a very flexible pattern that uses just strips as a base. You can change the size of the quilt by simply adding more strips or making them longer. You could even use a different shape instead of a triangle like a square or a trapezoid.
Its very much a beginner project and with just a little experience you will comfortably complete the quilt top in few hours. I chose a solid for the background but you could use low volume prints or make each strip a different colour.
The quilting on mine is perhaps a little complicated for a beginner but that’s only because I love quilting best! Something simpler would work fine.
I am teaching a class on the method on 8th March at Folly fabrics. I have reduced the concept down to a quilted cushion to fit into the 3 hours but the method is the same. The class is fully booked but I have written the pattern up and am posting it as a freebie if you would like to have a go. You can download it right here
