6 Awesome Arrow Quilts

Posted by on Oct 22, 2013 in Quilting | Comments


By definition, an arrow is a weapon that is made to be shot from a bow. It is usually a stick with a point at one end and feathers at the other end. Sounds rather dangerous, right? Of course there are other definitions, and in its less threatening form, an arrow is a symbol used to show direction. This tool has been a staple in decor for ages, and it continues to be a popularly featured item in contemporary quilting.

Take a look at these 6 stunning patterns available right here on Craftsy that will leave you inspired to sew your own arrows.

Orion Pattern

The Orion quilt is a stunner! Due to the size of the start block, this fat-quarter-friendly pattern is a great way to utilize those larger prints in your stash that can be difficult to sew with. This pattern includes diagrams, written instructions, and templates needed for the paper-pieced arrows.

The Queen’s Floor Pattern

The Queen’s Floor is a quick and easy quilt pattern that’s a modern take on the classic Ozark Maple Leaf block. This design is especially eye-catching, partially due to the alternating layout featuring printed fabrics and a crisp white solid. The pattern includes instructions for making a 36″ square baby version or a larger throw size quilt, and both versions are layer-cake-friendly.

    I like the arrow bed throw. It’s simple yet elegant. You could do the pillows too.
