I love quilts that use many dif­fer­ent fab­rics with­out be­ing out of con­trol. The calm cream back­ground tames the many fab­rics used in this quilt and lets each block shine. The re­sult is a quilt that is strong and graphic— per­fect for a man’s quilt or for a mod­ern home.” —Holly Daniels

COM­PLET­ING THE BLOCKS

1. Mark a di­ag­o­nal line from cor­ner to cor­ner on the wrong side of each B and D square.

2. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 2, place two B squares right sides to­gether on op­po­site cor­ners of one A square as shown in Fig­ure 2. 3. Stitch 1/4" on each side of the marked line. Cut apart on the marked line to make two A-B units as shown in Fig­ure 3; press. 4. Place a B square on the un­stitched cor­ner of each of the two A-B units and stitch as in step 3 re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 4. 5. Cut apart on the marked lines and press to com­plete four A-B-B units as shown in Fig­ure 5. 6. Re­peat steps 2–5 with the re­main­ing A and B squares to make a to­tal of four match­ing A-B-B units of each fabric.

7. Re­peat steps 2–5 with the C and D squares to make a to­tal of four match­ing C-D-D units of each fabric re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 6. 8. To com­plete one Ar­row­head block, se­lect one H square and four G squares and four each match­ing E rec­tan­gles, F squares and A-B-B and C-D-D units.

9. Sew G to F and add E to com­plete a cor­ner unit as shown in Fig­ure 7; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of four cor­ner units. 10. Join one each A-B-B and

C-D-D unit to make a side unit as shown in Fig­ure 8; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of four side units. 11. Sew a cor­ner unit to op­po­site sides of a side unit to com­plete the top row as shown in Fig­ure 9; press. Re­peat to make the bot­tom row. 12. Sew the H square be­tween two side units to make the cen­ter row as shown in Fig­ure 10; press. 13. Sew the cen­ter row be­tween the top and bot­tom rows to com­plete one Ar­row­head block re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 11; press. 14. Re­peat steps 8–13 to com­plete a to­tal of 16 Ar­row­head blocks.

COM­PLET­ING THE QUILT
