Anita's arrowhead quilt top

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Completing the quilt top. It feels good to get this far along in the project. I wanted to wait and just publish the picture of the quilt once I actually finished quilting it... but I couldn't wait. I was so excited that I have accomplished this much! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use lots of different fabrics in a variety of different color intensities. At first I choose a bunch of light colors. I could see after a few blocks that it needed more colors. Back to the store I went. (Since I am pretty new at quilting I don't just have a stash I can pull from at home.) Once I got more colors I was happier with the result. There are a couple of blocks that have very low contrast because both colors used were so light. I struggled with deciding if I should include them or not. In the end I decided I really liked the blocks and I just didn't want to leave them out. Although they do not have much contrast I find them interesting. Now I just have to decide how I want to quilt it!
