    Only too glad to help!!! I got the book from Amazon at Christmas! Still haven't plucked up the courage to try it! The OBW fascinates me but the ammount of fabric required is a bit daunting!!! Keep us posted how you get on!!

    Most of the Kaleidoscope/Wheel of Mystery blocks create an illusion when the light/dark is alternated. No books to buy and many free patterns on the internet. Also, many have few pieces per block so easier to reduce/enlarge.

    Thanks for the video. This has been something that I have always been fascinated with. She makes it look easy--ha ha
