    its looking fantastic and i cant wait to see the finished piece! It was good to see what the fabric looked like before you cut it up as i have been contemplating using this technique but was never sure what fabric would work..our big chain store is having a sale so might see if there is some fabric that might be suitable..how much should i buy?

    They look great Melanie. Are'nt they fun to do? It's so addicting because you can't wait to see what each block will look like. Perfect fabric!

    Well, you need at least 6 repeats in your fabric (or 8 if you plan to make your kaleidoscopes octogons) but if you want to make it bed sized you need a ton of fabric. I think I read in my book that you need something like 7 meters or close to that. Maybe someone who has made a big one can properly answer that question.

    It's gorgeous so far. Maybe you can find a batik or other fabrics to 'fill in' and make it bigger, IF you want it bigger!
