    Wall hanging, about 25 by 40, but that could change. I'd use the kaleidoscope pattern (rulers) but shrink the block to 5". I've had this idea in my head since I reached the end of Kayak on the Lake... so I'm at least glad to get it out of my head so I can see it better. :roll: Although this is just the general plan--it won't look exactly like this.

    I've been collecting batiks for it little by little and was surprised to find all I need, or maybe I wasn't so surprised. :wink:

    I think I'll make two at a time and give one to my sister.

    These made the cut. The gold in the center will be used very little.

    You always have such good ideas. That will be a knockout.

    But then I think I'm not using the kaleidoscope pattern as it's supposed to be used and wonder if I could make the same effect with tiny log cabins. Shrug.

    Love your lay out and colors. Looks to me like leaves are swirling through the pattern your working with. Great idea Karla. I really like this one. The fabrics are so rich.

    this is so amazing! done this way, it looks so different! it hardly looks like a kaleidoscope. all you see is color changing from value to value. the color becomes all-important. what size will this one be?

    can i be your sister?

    I trust your design instincts. You are certainly one of the more talented quilters I've seen!

    Karla I love it! and the fabrics are making me drool. :-D

    Little question, why are you concerned about using the K block if it's to be used?

    Weeeellll...I'm not considering any light to dark work, just a blending of seasons, so it won't look like circles...I feel I'm cheating myself out of a fabulous design the way it's meant to be...but I'm willing to step out of the box. :lol:

    Hey outside the box is a great place to be! Plus, I for one have faith in your ability for design so I'd say go for it. 'The way it's meant to be' is the way you WANT it to be. Just my two euro cents worth. ;-)

    yes, it could be done in log cabins. I love the idea of using log cabins:) (couldn't be because they are a favorite block of mine) no not all LOL

    Like I told Karla, I love it!! Of course, I love everything she does. But if you stand back from your monitor (and are as near-sighted as I am) it looks like a close up of a pinecone in a fir tree. Really neat.

    I like your 'outside-the-box' ideas. They turn into beautiful quilts. I really liked the color shading on Kayak on the Lake and look forward to seeing this one.
