    How did your fabric choices work on the first block? I’m pretty excited about my decision to work in a monochromatic palette. Although finding a light blue that had enough contrast with the white background was a little tricky.

      Go to the page that says: Mountain High Block 1. The picture of the block is under that heading and also Mountain High Block 1 is under that picture. In the next line it says: Assignment Arrow Crown download pattern here: (in red: arrow crown quilt block). Click on the red words and it will open for you to download.

    I found that I had reversed 2 blocks at the top and decided I liked it anyway so repeated it to make them bottom and top match, so…mine is slightly different.

      It’s amazing the different design elements that emerge if you flip just a couple of blocks. It gives everyone’s quilt a personal touch.

      I love the variation and not being afraid of just leaving it and moving forward!

    I am a little confused about what block goes with what. When trying to sort them out my eyes cross. Anyway, this is my Arrow block. I am making this quilt in Black and Tans. I even was a little confused in keeping the little blocks turned correctly and some aren’t exactly turned right. I still like, and your eyes may cross looking at it too! LOL

      That’s going to be a lovely color combination.

      I really like the dark fabrics! Your quilt will be stunning- and completely different from everyone else.
      For some reason my blocks switch position from layout to sewing machine. Glad to know I’m not the only one!

    here is mine!

    Obviously not sewn together.
    I got the bottom two rows put together just fine. They even came out to the correct measurement. From there it has been an exercise in total frustration and I will be walking away from it for a while.

      I hate it when that happens- and there is no rhyme or reason to it. ugh.
      Take a break for sure. While these are bigger blocks, they do have quite a few pieces to them.
      Most of my issues are seam allowance. I really got lazy with this last year and had to start watching it again because it would mess things up!
      Let us know if you need any help- or clarification with things.
      Your block is turning out beautiful. Your fabrics are perfect!

    Re cutting out the arrow block. Are we to add seam allowance?

  • #88414

    Steph.Otts @Steph.Otts

    Hi Carolyn, I think you already received a reply on Facebook, but the seam allowances are included in the given measurements. No need to add anything. Stephanie
