July Block of the Month: Aviator's Arrow

Quilt blocks don't have to be square! We already know that when you piece six equilateral triangles together, you get a hexagon. But what happens when you elongate that triangle? All of a sudden you have a different design. And what happens when you add a design to that triangle? The possibilities are endless.

Aviator's Arrow by Jen Sorenson of the Boston MQG is a simple paper pieced block that is perfect for the newbie paper piecer. With very few pieces to it, even the beginner paper piecer can dabble in creating a unique quilt. Inspired by several signs in airports, this block comes to life when repeated in various ways.
