Arcadia Avenue Blocks

 
 
Arcadia Avenue blocks are done! I'm so shocked to be done this quickly. I think I came up with a process that worked for me. Each block is made up of 12 paper pieced wedges. I would work on 3 wedges at a time. It only took for sessions to complete one block. I would spend a day or two sewing the wedges together to make the actual block. The blocks are grouped randomly in this photo. I still have to decide what color to make the background. Actually, the background is made of 2 different fabrics that are very close in color.
 
These are the last 2 blocks I made.

Target Practice
 
I plan on finding my 2 background fabrics. I'll have to cut 60 degree triangles which seem to square up the hexagons. I have a few other projects to work on for now but I feel lost without my paper piecing! I've started knitting a new shawl. I'll share it with you next post!

  2. As commented before...I love those blocks. What background are you going to use, I wonder. Are you going to FMQ those triangles in between? This is truly an exciting quilt.

    1. Thanks, Karin! I'm leaning towards a dark background but I'm not completely sure yet. I think this will quilt will have lots of places for FMQ! I will definitely FMQ the triangles and custom each block. I'm sure it will take a while!!
