Today I’m sharing my favorite Scrappy Arrows quilt, the Collection CF one. I sewed up four Scrappy Arrows quilt samples this time around and this one is probably my favorite. I had this Collection CF fat quarter bundle in my stash for a while just waiting for the right quilt. It worked out so nicely by using the low volumes as the background and the darker prints as the arrows in this quilt.
Scrappy Arrows is a fun flying geese arrow quilt that can be sewn up using a scrappy background like this Collection CF one or using a solid background like this Ruby Star Society one.
The Scrappy Arrows quilt pattern is in the Quilty Love pattern shop.
Scrappy Arrows quilt pattern
Scrappy Arrows is brand new and in the shop. It’s a fun flying geese arrow quilt that has a scrappy background and scrappy arrows. I love a good low volume background these days and that’s the entire inspiration behind this quilt.
Fat Quarter Friendly
Scrappy Arrows is scrap stash friendly and fat quarter friendly. Use an assortment of fat quarters for the background and another contrasting assortment of fat quarters for the flying geese.
Flying Geese quilt pattern
The Scrappy Arrows quilt pattern uses the four at a time flying geese method. This is a nice and fast way to make flying geese with no wasted fabric.
The patterns offers both sizing your flying geese perfectly or upsizing and then trimming to size. I prefer to upsize and then trim to size. This Wing Clipper flying geese ruler is my favorite ruler to use when making flying geese. I don’t collect a lot of quilt rulers but this one does get used.
Tons of quilt sizes
The Scrappy Arrows quilt pattern includes lots of quilt sizes. The instructions include the following quilt sizes:
- Baby size quilt
- Small throw size quilt
- Large throw size quilt
- Twin size bed quilt
- Full size bed quilt
- Queen size bed quilt
- King size bed quilt
Scrappy or non scrappy options
The Scrappy Arrows quilt pattern also includes instructions for both a scrappy background like this Collection CF one or a solid background. Make an assortment of scrappy arrows or solid arrows. The quilt pattern offers all of these choices.
Collection CF fat quarter bundle by Carolyn Friedlander
I’ve had this neutral color story Collection CF fat quarter bundle in my stash for a while now. I’ve been waiting for the perfect quilt to come along for it. It’s a mix of low volume neutrals and darker neutrals.
This Scrappy Arrows quilt was a great excuse to cut into it. I love how nice and calming and neutral this quilt turned out to be.
Low volume scrappy background
A low volume scrappy background adds so much interest to a quilt. I love scrappy backgrounds in general but low volume calms it all down while still keeping it interesting.
Riley Blake Wide back
This Collection CF Scrappy Arrows quilt is backed in a black Riley Blake Blossoms wide back.
Bessie Pearl pre-made bias binding
This flying geese quilt is finished off with a pre-made bias binding by Bessie Pearl. I believe it’s a Robert Kaufman Essex linen. Karen sent me a handful of her bias bindings to try and they sure were nice to have on hand. She has such a fun selection of pre-made quilt bindings and bias tape.
