    Thanks for sharing.
    I use a blade(the fabric section not a real blade) template that I cut and that makes 10 blades for this pattern. They start at 8 1/4" and finish at 7 3/4". Just my math for a size I like for a hotpad.

    I send these blades out for free. Just send me your postal address. I can also send a pdf file with the blade file if anyone wants it and they can print it off and do it them selves. I just use a fine point magic marker and trace the pattern and then cut it out of thick plastic. I use template plastic that is clear. You need it to be clear so you can trace off some of the features. That way you can place the template on the next spot in the fabric and match the features to get the same fussy cut blade.

    I can make other sizes. I do have one that makes 5 blades and makes a 3 1/2" or 4" DK Without looking I can't say for sure the size but around that.

    I've played around with cats and mushrooms and all sorts of fabrics. They need to be busy fabrics and it is so much fun to see what you can make with this.

    I don't know. I would like to do a tute on them but I wrote an ebook on them which sells here on the board and I can't use anything in the book. So it is a fine line to walk. I will have to give it some more thought. I can't remember what projects I used in the book so I need to see if there is anything I can show that isn't in the book. The book of course is more info and more in depth info as to how to choose the right fabric etc.

    We'll see. I like to offer a little something for those who can't afford to buy the book. But I'm not sure if I can find a way to offer a tute without compromising the book. I hope I can.

    so pretty, I just love Kaleidoscope but to busy doing other things and haven't really got to it to much. It seems to take a great bit of fabric to get the repeat, any suggestions.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I adore these, but I have a question. I know when I did a kaleidoscope quilt, it took a lot of fabric to find six repetitions of the pattern. So these have TEN repetitions of the fabric. Are they scraps from a really big quilt that you did? Also what do you use for batting that is safe for potholders?
