Arcadia Avenue, Block 1
I started by sewing each wedge into pairs.
I made sure I lined up all my colors properly. This pattern is actually a book that includes all the information and foundations needed to make the entire quilt. There are 12 blocks in this quilt.
Here's one half sewn together.

I've already started Block 2, Peacock Feathers. This quilt is addicting! So fun!!
