HJS Quilt Block Two - Arrowheads

 Arrowheads Quilt Block, HJQ, Another Quiltmaker

Here we are with the second block called "Arrowheads" from the book. It's made by using foundation paper, a technique new to me. Although the book includes the pattern, it includes no instruction on the assembly. So one must be knowledgeable in foundation piecing or search out resources to learn this method, which is what I did.

I found a video by Angela Walters which helped in understanding the "how to" principles.

Once I could grasp the idea, it came together well. I'm happy with how the block turned out.

Arrowheads Quilt Block backside, HJQ, Another Quiltmaker

Here's a backside view of the Arrowheads block. I'm trying to keep everything clean a neatly pressed, still with pressing seams open when possible.

I also opted to change the background fabric from "Ghost Hounds tooth" to Kona cotton in "Bone" color, which is shown on this block. I've remade block one to match.

In review, this little block was definitely a skill builder, checking off on a new technique learned. I'm looking forward to the next block!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!
