I grabbed random colors and sewed the arches and then pieced and puzzled them in between my scrap strips. Very little trimming was involved. I placed the pieces from dark to light giving the illusion of sun and shadow on the arches, just like my photo shoot below!! I love the idea of Triumphal Arches and who knew I would actually find one near my neighborhood. Fortuitous I believe!! The b…
