I am working on a gift quilt using Anita's Arrowhead pattern. I have a few done and a few sewn together for the first step and not yet cut.
I really enjoy making these blocks and hope to get a number of them done in the next week or so.
Go to Patchwork Times to see others Design Walls, etc.

I am participating in Judy L's 2014 Quilt a Long project called Tell it to the Stars on her website Patchwork Times
Here is my completed work for January
I am a little unsure about my color combination - all of the fabrics in the quilt but one other lighter rust color are in this block. But after having done Judy's project in 2013 I am sure it will turn out fine
One of the many quilt books I inherited from my dear mother is 'Quick Quilts from your Scrap Bag'. I immediately wanted to do the pattern called 'Cabin in the Woods'.
It took me over a year of collecting red fabrics for the cabins but most of the fabrics did come from my stash.
I finished the blocks on January 8th and got them all sewed together tonight!
The pattern calls for making a scrappy border from all of the fabrics used in the quilt but I don't really like how it looks.
I am considering putting a small border of the sky fabric on the sides and top and then a dark green border around it all.
I would welcome any comments or suggestions. I have my Quilt Bee meeting at my house next Monday so I hope to get some suggestions from them also.
