Making my Arrow Crown Block
I have been busy making my Arrow Crown Block. It has been so much fun, being able to choose and use the lovely fabrics in my own stash.
I have taken photos of my construction process for you, so you can see how this lovely block goes together.
The first step is to lay your block out in the order you would like. This helps with knowing where all your pieces go when you are sewing. I usually have this laid out by my machine as I am sewing.
Then I divide the block into sections, in this case I find the sections that will make this into a nine patch block. This is the first section that I sewed together. These are the flying geese sections in the center of the block.
I sewed all four of these sections together.
The next sections I sewed together were the half square triangle sections.
These sewn together form this unit. There are four of these units.
Next section to sew were the 1/2 square triangle units.
These sections create the four corners of the block.
Then you need to sew your sections together as you would a nine patch block.

Now that the holidays are well and truly over, and we have started the year 2020. I am back in my sewing room while the house is peacefully quiet, my process for starting the new year is to finish some of the quilts that did not get finished at the end of 2019. One of the quilts to finish is the Treasures in the scrap bin quilt from the sew along, and as I am working on it I would be like to share my thoughts with you.
Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.
I have been moving on with quilting the treasures from the scrap bin quilt. All the stitch in the ditch is done, now it is time to decide on a plan for the free motion quilting that will add to the fun of this little quilt........
