    I am unable to see it. What should I do to correct this? I am planning to try my hand at a kaleidoscope very soon so I am eager to see your tutorial. Thank you. Learner 747

    I, too, would like to know the answer to this question. I don't think the answer actually addressed the question... obviously, we have never done this before - hahaha

    Each stack makes one block. Every piece in the stack is exactly the same if you have matched up your repeats precisely. Every piece in each block is the same. That's where the kaleidoscope effect comes from.

    Thank you. so does that mean each stack must have 8 wedges? I noticed there were 8 pieces to make up the kaleidoscope...

    It depends on the degree of the ruler you use. It should say on the ruler how many wedges you need to complete the circle of the block.

    Oh, I get it now. I see the special ruler is crucial. Thanks so much for the clarification

    The kaleidoscopes we did at our local class do not look like these. Initial methods same cutting of triangles was as follows; after the pinning through good points, the 8 layers were cut into squares, size was worked out by the size of material. A 4 inch square roughly would make 8inch shape. Cut the squares in half diagonally. Keep 8 pieces together. Look at "angiequilts" blog site to see all our different layouts. No 2 shapes look alike.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Great tutorial! Very clear instructions. I love kaleidoscope quilts but have been unsure where to start. Your tutorial makes it very clear. Thank you!
