What are you most proud of? I like the fact that I used colors that are way out of my comfort zone, and that the arrowheads, along with the pinwheel, kite, and rope quilting motifs are reminiscent of a little boy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was easy and fun. I didn't interface the diagonals and had no difficulty with stretching, although I did starch the project heavily and press carefully.

Congratulations on becoming a grandmother! Your fabric colors and quilting are bound to inspire future Arrowhead quilts.
