Arrow Churn Quilt :: version 2

Hi all and Happy St. Patrick's Day! I thought this recent finish would be fun to share today and it does have a little green in it ;-) I was lucky enough to get to test the Arrow Churn quilt pattern for Caroline at Nightingale Quilts and this is the second one I made.
This quilt is actually a variation of her pattern, the flying geese in this version are reversed from the way they're laid out in the pattern. I just liked the way it looked as I was laying it out, so I went with it! Plus I think it speaks to what a versatile pattern it is that it looks great both ways. This measures about 60" square and it's the perfect size to snuggle under on the couch or lay on at the park. It also works up super quickly and is a perfect skill-builder for a beginning quilter. I'm not getting paid to say any of this, just my own opinions :-)

Caroline has a craftsy shop with some lovely patterns and I have no doubt we'll be seeing more great patterns from her - I've got her Swift Wreath pattern very high on my "to sew" list after seeing a few gorgeous ones on IG.
This one is made with Anna Maria Horner Hand Drawn Garden and Dowry, with Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids for front and binding. Lime green flannel on the back from JoAnn's and WHY haven't I been backing every quilt in flannel? After snuggling on this one I might just do that from now on.

Thanks for stopping by!
