Arrow Crown

I have been looking at this block in another calendar for days.  I admired it and loved the way it took on different designs.  Imagine my surprise when suddenly this was the block for today.  I will say this, I love this block, however, there should be a big warning on it that it takes a lot of time to complete.

Twice while working on this I looked at the clock and realized another hour had gone by so quickly I hadn't even noticed it.  Was it worth it?  You bet.  It is not a block that is easily chain pieced because of all the pieces and the way they need to be put together.  A person really needs to pay attention to the order in which they are sewn.  This is number 321 of 366 and it is a 12-inch block with 81 pieces.  Happy Stitching!!
