More FMQ Arcadia Avenue




I worked on the center of this block for 1 hour. It seemed like a long time for such a small area. There's a lot of fabric in that center so I had to quilt very slowly. All of the grey areas have been quilted in the ditch on both top and bottom seams.


The white diamond and black diamond were both quilted in the ditch. You can see my free motion loops in the white diamond. I'm going to quilt in the black diamond but I have to change my thread to black. I can't believe it, but this block is almost done! I'm going to finish 4 blocks and then tackle some of the black set in triangles. It's slow and steady but I'm getting there!!
