Blogger's Quilt Festival- Throw Quilts - Batik Arrowheads



I started this quilt in late March as a class project from Anita Grossman Solomon's Craftsy class, Traditional Blocks Made Simple. At about that same time, a family friend was hospitalized and in need of love and prayers. This quilt soon became his.


I really enjoyed diving into my batik stash to find the most guy-friendly prints and colors. We shuffled the blocks around several times before settling on this warm/cool arrangement.
 

The backing is nothing to write home about. It gets the job done. The quilting is simply straight lines in the ditch. I loved how it looked on the back of my brown sofa.
 

My mother tested out the quilt at a Marine Corps function for enlistees. 
 

Again, many thanks to Amy for making this all possible!
 

Settle in with your favorite drink and enjoy the show!

I love the coloring you gave these blocks! Her technique for these blocks is such a great design and I love seeing it done in new ways.
