Aniva's Arrows

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

I haven't had a chance to introduce my newest pattern,
Every Which Way.

Right after the Spring 2011 International Quilt Market, I took my Every Which Way quilt down from my booth walls and it went right into the arms of the ladies of a local quilt store!  It's been on display there ever since and I haven't been able to feature it here on my blog yet.  I'll be getting it back next week, but I couldn't wait to share with you another version of it.

My friend Aniva, made this version for her son.  She added a stop border and an outer border to make it double the size of the original pattern.

Aniva used Riley Blake's Alphabet Soup Boy (main) as her inspiration fabric.  It's perfect because it has little arrows on it!

She used an assortment of fabrics for her arrows (incorporating all of the colors from the border fabric) to give it a real scrappy feel and then she backed it with a light green minky to make it extra soft and cuddly.  She finished the whole thing off with an all over arrow quiting design.  Pretty fun if you ask me! 

And I love what Aniva did next ~ she used her arrow scraps to make this little number:

Thanks Aniva for sharing this project with me (and letting me snap some pictures of it too)!   You've inspired me to make a big one for my 8-year old whose been crushin' on it ever since Market. 

You can find the Every Which Way pattern HERE.
