Item details


Skill Level: 2 out of 5 (Confident Beginner)

A red herring is “something that misleads or distracts from a relevant or important issue.” The design goal of this quilt is to use a bold and distracting arrow to divert a viewer from noticing the regular arrows which happen to include one facing the wrong direction.

The pattern is suitable for beginners after having established the ability to sew a consistent seam allowance. The pattern contains instructions for making three sizes: baby, lap, or queen.

::: Lap Size Quilt Fabric Requirements :::
Background Fabric - 3 5/8 yards
Arrow Fabric - 1 1/2 yards
"Red Herring" Fabric - 1 fat quarter
Binding Yardage (2 1/2" strips) - 1/2 yard | 7 strips
Backing Fabric - 4 yards
