Pointy includes instructions for making 4½" x 30½" patchwork arrows
in a small or large quilt. The arrows are pieced using conventional
patchwork techniques, with no paper piecing or templates.
Instructions for making individual blocks are also included.
Please refer to quilt sizes and materials requirements in the listing
images. Pointy is a flexible pattern that can be made with precut
fabrics, fat eighths, or scraps.
You will also need the fabric marking tool of your choice.
The patchwork arrows in Pointy are made in sets of 5, with each set
using 5 squares 5” x 5” each and 5 strips 1-1/2” x WOF or 5 fat eighths.
Use 1 set to make the small quilt and 5 sets to make the large quilt.
You can color coordinate the fabrics, as I have, or go for an entirely
scrappy look. The choice is yours!
If you prefer a scrappier look and want to make the arrows individually you can refer to the instructions for single blocks.
We have used a white solid fabric for the arrows and a neutral indigo
for the background. Don’t hesitate to make different choices, just be
sure the fabrics have enough contrast that the shape of the arrows is
