Scrappy Saturday Aqua Arrowheads


It's the last aqua Saturday at RSC and this week we will get a new colour to work on, so I needed to make some aqua arrowhead blocks to add to the collection. 
The unique construction method makes this a fun block to sew. Each block starts with two contrasting 4.25" squares which after sewing, cutting, resewing and trimming end up to be 3.5".


Here are the 30 arrowhead blocks I've made so far. That purple one really sticks out like a sore thumb eh?
I like making this block so much that in addition to making this miniature version, I am making a blue arrowhead quilt using the 9" block size.  The pattern can be found here if you want to give it a try. And to see how to cut for various sized blocks from 3.5" to 12.5", click here
Enjoy your Saturday!

  1. I haven't even started stitching my Aqua blocks. I'll be behind on the May blocks, too, since I won't get much sewing time in May. Oh well. Nice blocks you've made.
