This is my version of Anita's Arrowhead, shown in the Nov/Dec 2010 issue of Quiltmaker. I call it " 'Whirled Piece(s)" as I hand-quilted a whirl in the center of each block and there are many pieces.  , I wanted a queen size quilt, and a year-round quilt so I went scrappy and added sashing between my blocks.  Additionally, I used the Quilt as You Go method as taught in Georgia Bonesteel's book "Lap Quilting Lives". 

 

Anita's Arrowhead was featured in the Nov/Dec, 2010 issue of Quiltmaker.  It was designed by Anita Grossman Solomon and featured a new cutting techique.

Marsha, I like your Whirled Piece(s).  I'm a big scrappy quilter too.  I love how making a scrappy quilts frees up space for me to get more fabric!  Looks like you cleared lots of space...even your border is scrappy.  Sandi
