Cupid's Arrow Point
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Cupid's Arrow Point quilt block is one to choose for a variety of reasons:
~ You want to make a larger block
~ You want to practice some of the patches you don't use all the time -- like quarter square triangles, flying geese and the square in a square patch.
~ You just want to try something a little different
~ and finally ... you want to make a special block for your Valentine
This quilt block is constructed first as individual patches, then as "chunks" and finally as an uneven nine patch. So all in all it is a great learning tool.
The sample quilts illustrated use the standard side by side setting with sashing and an on point setting, giving similar but still very different results.
