Boomerang!!


This is Boomerang, block 8 of Arcadia Avenue. The wedges were easy to paper piece but not so easy to put together. I was chopping the points off of a few of the wedges as I put them together. This doesn't usually happen when paper piecing. I'm not sure I made the wedges properly. It ended up working out but this block made me sweat!


I think they look pretty good all together! I can't believe I'm so close to finishing these gorgeous blocks. I thought it would take me so much longer. I'm starting to think about what color background to choose. I still have no idea.


Here's a peek into the next block. They may look like rockets but the name of the block is Filmstrip!
Doesn't it remind you of old filmstrip?? You'll have to wait and see what this block looks like when complete!

    1. There are 12 blocks but they're set together in a unique way. They make up 3 columns of 4 blocks each. There are diamond shapes between them to square up the hexagon shapes. Will be interesting!

  4. Hard to believe how quickly you are getting these done. Each one is so pretty, and even the names of the blocks are fun.

    1. I'm surprised too! I'm even ahead of the quilt along and I started late! I think I just found a method that works for me and just happens to be quick!! (Good thing!)
