Arcadia Avenue Block 7

I finished machine quilting the seventh block of Arcadia Avenue. As you can see, I made a loop flower in the middle.

I made loops in the white fabric area. I was going to leave it this way but decided it just wasn't enough.

I think the block looks balanced now that the black and white areas are both quilted. 

Hoping to start block 8 next. Only 4 blocks left!!
