Arcadia Avenue




I have to admit that I started a new project! I started the Arcadia Avenue Block of the Month Quilt Pattern by Sassafras Lane Designs. The quilt is beautiful. It's made up of 12 paper pieced kaleidoscope blocks.


I bought the book which includes the patterns for all 12 blocks. There are different settings of the blocks as well as different colored background fabrics.  I'll choose that when I get closer to completing the quilt top.

As you can see, I only made 3 wedges so far. Each block is made up of 12 wedges. I love the directions supplied in the book. They are very concise and so helpful. They even tell you what size to cut each fabric segment so you're sure to fill the intended area properly. So far, so good! I think this project will take me a long time! I'm really enjoying it! Can't wait to finish up my first block!

  1. This quilt is going to be awesome! I'm glad you are enjoying the paperpiecing.
    Even just a few of those blocks made into a table runner would be terrific.

    1. Thanks, Julierose. I heard 2-4" or even 3-6" for my area. Each station is different. Hope it misses us and you also! Where is spring??

More Machine Quilting

I finally started machine quilting the scrap quilt I made a little while ago. It took me forever to decide what to do with that border....
