I am so lucky to work with such a talented group of people. One of the gals is Holly Hickman. Her brain is amazing. You may have seen her quilt in a recent Quilts and More Spring 2014 publication. I knew when she made that quilt that I would want to make it once the magazine came out so I hoarded the fabrics.

to make a certain quilt and hoarding is not uncommon for me, but for some reason
this one actually got done. Arrows are such a trending thing that I had
to jump right on this project. My husband is 5/128 Chickasaw Indian which makes the kids 5/256. I think this is the reason for their newly found attraction to Indian items.

I was surprised when my eldest son, Grant loved this quilt so I am sure it will find a place in his home. I made the quilt extra long because I really wanted to use the pre- printed log cabin fabric.
He is a tall
dude so this would cover him from head to toe. Don’t you hate those
“throws” that are big enough to actually get cozy under?
My version of Holly’s quilt is quilted a little different and I added a little bit more border fabric. I can’t wait to throw it in the wash and deliver it to #1 son.
it really is kind of unique, have not seen this pattern before – I too love long quilts – gotta cover the toes!
Long quilts and chunky toes!
It's gorgeous! Love the log cabin fabric, too!
Holly did such a great job designing the project and it was a ton of fun to make.
It looks fantastic Lissa!!! I love it!! And yes, I love a nice long throw too, you got to be able to wrap yourself in it 😉
And big enough to snuggle with the kiddos!
Beautiful quilt! Love the arrows!
looks like such a fun quilt to make!
Love this quilt!! Holly is wonder woman!
Super cool! I adore the quilting you've done on it as well – it's impeccable!
Hey Lissa, Love the quilt!!
I am 1/16th Chickasaw from my mother…. maybe we are related and don't know it!
Lucky Grant to get such a nice quilt!
And I too love this pattern.

HI!!!! I love everything about it!!!!! Lucky son!!!!! I am 1/16th Cherokee!!!!! My hubs is too and he would love this!!!!! Thank You
Great quilt! Where do Chicksaw people originate from? In Australia Indigenous people are not in favour as identifying themselves by fractions. They believe people either identify as Aboriginal or do not. Of course, you cannot claim to be Aboriginal if you have no blood links to the people, just to clarify that!
