HST Arrows – another pinterest project

So I snuck in some sewing time this past few weeks. I had to break it up but, this is such an easy pattern it could be done in one day or weekend for sure.

I am a “American Pickers” addict, it’s so romantic to go into those places and come out with ‘good stuff’ – the only thing better is ‘Flea Market Flip’ – we usually give our design ideas first then critique what the contestants did and then sit in awe at the prices they get for those thing – how romantic is that!!!!!

Anyway, I learned a term on Pickers lately – “Completest”

completest:  having all necessary parts, elements, or steps – in quilting terms: this is where you are obsessed and have to have the whole line of fabric – even if you don’t have any idea or plan for it.  I have come to realize that I am a completest! and to complicate it even worse, I am a purest. I cannot take a pattern and change even the colors – or I cannot image a pattern in a different color set.   I am not a doodler in the terms that I can sit and sketch things, I sketch words or phrases – not images.

So, any way, back to my mini project: I found this on Pinterest and total fell in love with it.

I had to find the exact fabric it was made in and this time it wasn’t out of production (you can’t imagine how many times that happens. Order it. There is no pattern exactly, she just tells you what you need for squares, then triangles then you put it together. But I had some alone time this weekend and I was able to get it put together. I am putting this on the top of my UFO pile to be quilted/finished – that pile is getting very tall, by the way.

Here is mine and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.
