Which Way? (new project)

Some days ago I had an idea for an arrow quilt, and this scribble in my sketch book...


 ...became this little quilt top.

I used the black Madrona Road text fabric as the background and a few more script fabrics for the arrows, together with some more favorite prints.
It was a bit tricky to make sure that the text was right side up and in the right direction in all the small pieces, but I think it was worth it. I really love the Madrona Road text fabrics.

So far I am quite pleased with the result. It is really great to see how a little sketch comes to live.

I made some pics during the progress and am planning to do a little tutorial for this quilt, if you are interested. Please let me know. ;-)

I´m linking up with Quilt Story´s Fabric Tuesday!

I love the text print background. Great job getting it all going the right direction.

Marla said...

This is really striking. With the prints you used you get other secondary patterns coming up but would be equally amazing really letting the arrows shine. I would love to see a tutorial.

I love this! The text print looks great but it must have been really tricky to manage.
