Which Way Is Up?


About this Quilt

quilt-which-way-is-up-flatWhich way you take this directional pattern is up to you! Elaine Theriault based this quilt on her block design for Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Volume 16. One block is arranged to create an overall pattern with plenty of humor and style, and the scrappy fabrics give it an extra dose of dynamic movement.

Use the super fast, efficient and accurate Fast Flying Geese technique to make the blocks quickly. Use scraps from your fabric stash to use favorite prints in a project that you’ll enjoy forever. The large expanse of background space give you lots of room to show off some interesting quilting.

Interesting ideas for modifying this pattern could include adding pieced striped blocks to make longer arrows, or making log cabin style block to make arrows turn and point in different directions, or using novelty prints in the arrows to give them even more personality! Take this pattern where you wish!
