    Has there been any tutorials for the kalaidoscope pattern? I would like to try that but have not seen anything on it. Is it hard? As I really can't remember anyone posting any finished piece done like that. Is there any site that might give directions? Thanks for any input.

    I woul recommend that you get one of the books, either One Block Wonders by Maxine Rosenthal, or Stack & Whack by Bethany Reynolds. They look very different, so you need to decide which one you like best. To see examples of both, use the Search function.

    It depends on what type of kaleidoscope you want to do. There are simple ones and than there are very complex ones like Paula Nadelstern make. I have made both and enjoyed them. If you want to do the kind that uses the Kaleido ruler the secret is to sew from the outside to the middle. If you want to do Paula Nadelstern, have lots of patience. Here is a picture of one I did. It is about 27" square and has over 300 pieces. If you've never seen a Paula Nadelstern, google her and look at those on her website. They are incredible!

    Ricky Tims has a book & video out called Kool Kaleidoscope.
    Our local Quilt Club had lots of fun in a class creating these!

    Hi our own Rhonda has a tute and it is wonderful... I have made one... Sorry to say,not because I don't want to just haven't been able to focus on something that has to be so precise to come out right. SIGH!!! But one day soon... I had fun making this and really want to continue using same material. Don't think I will be able to use same look but I do love the colors and it is so happy and bright looking.. Here is a picture of my one and only but not the last one. BillsBonBon

    where do you find Rhondas tut? I tried search and several other sites and the only thing I could find was where you had to order the CD for 29.95.
