I had been wanting to try these arrows and when Lisa's traveling quilt came to me, I knew this was the right project for them. I used the free tutorial by Carla at Grace and Favour. It's a good tutorial. Easy to follow. The process leaves lots of big scraps but they're big enough to work nicely into other projects, so I don't think of it as waste. For my arrows I fussy cut the arrow heads and the little pieces that form the very bottom tail of the stem.
I love Lisa's colour palette. It's not one I would have thought of. Lisa started with the feathers (another project I want to try - Anna Maria Horner has a free pdf pattern and tutorial for them) and Jaclyn added the flying geese. I especially like the row of narrow flying geese. I've never seen those done like that before. I didn't attach my arrows. I've left them for others to attach as they see fit.
For the end of January I have to have my contribution to Sheila's traveling quilt finished. I know what I'm going to do but won't get started until the new year. The traveling quilts (11 of them) are a time consuming project but I wouldn't have wanted to miss out on it and I can't wait to see what's happening with my Zodia quilt.
Here's the doll quilt I made with my leftovers.
