Arrow in the raibow

I loved the free pattern for a baby blanket " Which Way" from the Mixed Bag collection from Moda Fabrics. I was lucky to buy a charm pack from this collection. I added to that nine solids and here is an arrow on the rainbow :


As always I have modified the pattern - I enlarged it to accomodate in it  the whole charm pack.  So it's not  a blanket - rather a wall panel  or a carpet.
 


I cut a Charm pack into 5 inch squares  and pieced into the shape of arrow using a fusible vlieseline. Very quick and acurate method. 



I added a grey backing with owls (which I like very much) and hand quiltilng: grille design on the arrows and small arrows on solids (I put a thick cotton batting inside so the quilting isn't very visible).
