Arrow Stone Quilt pattern release

Hi everyone! It’s always an exciting moment when an idea that starts in your mind becomes a reality. That’s how it feels today with my Arrow Stone quilt pattern release. Exciting and a big sense of relief! PDF copies are available in my Etsy shop and Arrow Stone is on sale through the month of January!

Arrow Stone Quilt Pattern is now available!  Designed and made by Julie Cefalu @ The Crafty Quilter.

Arrow Stone Quilt Pattern Details

Arrow Stone is a modern design based on traditional quilt units. It comes in three sizes: baby (38″ x 53″), throw (53″ x 68″) and queen (97″ x 97″). The quilt blocks are large (15″ x 15″ finished) and they create a fun, secondary pattern when sewn together. I really love the block all by itself – I think it would make a great pillow to match the quilt!

I love the throw size version of this quilt. It’s the perfect size to cuddle up in and it’s just right for a special gift. Once the blocks are made, the quilt comes together really fast!

Arrow Stone can be made with yardage or you can make each block scrappy and unique. The pattern has fabric requirements for both options. The fabric I used is Quilter’s Linen by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. It has a beautiful texture which creates subtle shading in the fabric. The backing is from the Imperial Collection also by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The quilting was done by Carol Dockery from The Granary Quilt Shop. Carol did a beautiful job and I owe her a big favor for the quick turn around!

This pattern is the result of a quilt pattern writing course that I recently finished at Quilter’s Candy. I learned so many things including design, Adobe Illustrator, marketing, editing and much more. If you’ve ever thought about making your own patterns, I would absolutely recommend this class.

Pattern Tester Parade

One thing that is really important and helpful in launching a new pattern is to find good pattern testers. I had an amazing response from an Instagram call for testers, and I am so proud of what they did! Enjoy this beautiful pattern tester parade.

Wasn’t that fun! I truly enjoyed making this pattern and working with all of my “teammates”. This is truly a collaborative process. My plan is to have an Arrow Stone quilt along later in February. That means we’ll all make this quilt together and I’ll share lots of tips along the way. I’ll let you know more about that soon.

  1. love the pattern Can you tell me what fabric was used for the small orange block with flower in the middle? Thanks Dianne

  2. Congratulations, Julie, on a gorgeous pattern. Your testers did a fabulous job. It will be fun to see the QAL, probably a bit over committed at this point, but I will keep an eye on it as it progresses.

  3. What a truly beautiful pattern! Every quilt in your parade is just as lovely as the one you have featured! Wow you certainly have a very creative side and your colour sense is just wonderful! Congratulations on your new release!

  4. What a beautiful quilt and a new pattern to add to your growing collection. I’m so happy for you! It was a great team effort from your volunteers to be part of this too, and some nice quilts in their version!

  5. I love this pattern Julie! Loved how the quilt changed with the different colour choices. Would make one!

  6. Julie, I have been dabbling in quilting for many years and consider myself traditional. This is one of the most beautiful “modern” designs I have seen! I enjoyed viewing your testers’ designs and was impressed with the different color placements and quilting. You have really come into your own with this one, wow! Sue H

  7. I love this pattern, Julie! And the multiple sizes are such a wonderful bonus! I can’t wait to start choosing my fabrics and getting started!
