His quilty arrows landed here, on my latest Glitter Quilt and now you can sew it up too.
Just like all my other Glitter Quilt Patterns, Cupid Missed is strip-pieced!
Get out your low volume fabrics and start gathering together your favorite navies and corals because I know you'll want to cut them into strips and sew this up.
Okay, really you can use whatever colors you like, but navy and coral are my current faves so that's what I used. See my tips for choosing fabrics for a low volume quilt here.
I know it's hard to believe, but I sew all of my Glitter Quilts without cutting a single square. I cut strips, I sew them together, and then I cut columns from the strips.
See how in this video for a strip pieced checkerboard block. I use the same method in the Glitter Quilts, except that my strip sets are all sewn from fabrics in the same color family.
This Glitter Quilt is different from the others though. For the first time, I have added applique to it.
After much experimentation, I discovered that a few appliquéd strips were just what I needed to turn something like the classic weathervane quilt block design into a modern arrows quilt. As soon as I saw it on paper I knew that I needed to sew it up!
This pattern also includes a bonus! The smaller 'Cupid Baby' quilt is a perfect fast and easy low volume quilt project.
To celebrate the release of Cupid Missed (and Independence Day, yay!) I'm putting all of the digital patterns in my Etsy Shop - including this one - on sale for 25% off for one week only.
