Design Wall Monday 11/22

In an attempt to lessen stress of a new baby in the family, I took a few minutes for quilt therapy and you know, it worked!  I read about quilt therapy I  believe on a post at Stash Manicure. So I actually have something on my wall after a full week of no quilting, piecing, etc.  These are blocks called Anita's Arrowhead and I saw them in an article in the latest Quiltmaker.  They are from Ms Solomon's new book called Rotary Cutting Revolution.  I'm going to buy it as soon as I can.  These were made from 2 squares, 3 cuts and I get this amazing large block.  She made her's from 8 1/2" squares. I made mine from 10" squares in case I buy a layer cake and they make up into finished 11 1/2" squares, so I would have a big quilt in no time.   They sew up in a snap!  What I'll do with these, I don't know yet, but I can see making seven more from my stash and making another preemie quilt.

Nice blocks, and I like the pattern. I haven't done anything too complicated and this pattern looks it would fit into my doings. Good job....

I bought the book last fall and experimented with her X block. I think her block was too small there too, so enlarging it is a good idea. I was going to do arrowhead next...but Christmas is first.
