Settings for my Arrow Crown Block
January 31, 2012
Well its a lovely day here today, sitting sewing is hard when the sunshine is pulling you outside.
I have been working on my Arrow Crown Block and have had loads of fun playing with fabric selections and arrangements for this block.
It is amazing how re-arranging the fabrics makes a difference to the look of the block. Take a look at my pictures and see which arrangement you like the best.

I love using a design wall for doing this, you can really see what is going on with your block. I also take a photo of the block each time, before I change it so I can put the fabrics back in the right places when I have decided on my layout. I will now be busy piecing my block together and will post the results in my next post. But maybe a few hours of sunshine will come first.
As you can see I love busy quilts and love to use as many fabrics as I can to get the look I like. This is only a personal preference as you can create a lovely look with only a few fabrics if that is your choice. I would love to see some of the blocks if you decide to make them, if you send me your pictures I will gladly add them to the blog to share with everyone.
The pattern will be sent in the Pine Valley Quilts
