    I checked out a couple of sites last night for Gmarie, who was looking for instructions, so I thought why not - lets have a go myself!!

    I found a fairly good tutorial on www.bobrow.net, click on kimberleys webpage and go to her quilting page, then to all night tutorial

    Heres a couple of pictures, my fabric choice wasn't so good, as it was only a practice piece. :D

    Thanks Patrice, I think a bolder print which would show the effect would have been better, but this is only the beginning....... :D

    Great block and fabric. I like the kaleidoscope effect of the center. You did a really good job of fussy cutting to get the right effect!
