    For your amusement...

    I've been fascinated by kaleidoscope patterns. I decided to try this out in Windows Paint using my photo of my beginner class table runner.

    If I can get this to upload right, the first pic will be the part of the table runner photo I worked from.

    I selected a bit of that to make the kaleidoscope. I got the first two pieces together - and they make a face! Can you see the pop-eyed man with the moustache? In my elegant rose fabric, yet!

    He's wonderful - who'd guess he was hiding in there!

    For some reason, he's clearer against a gray background, so...

    (Nope, guess not. He is clearer on my machine, not on the message board. Can't see how to delete this reply, though.)

    I have several yards of that same fabric and have been trying to decide what to do with it. I fell in love with its shimmery look, but now I'm intrigued by its other possibilities. Do you suppose there are more little men hiding in there? What fun!

    Dunster, you seem to have a better eye for this kind of thing than I do, judging by your avatar quilt and others. I've been playing with it (see below) but haven't seen other faces or things yet. Please post if you find any!



    No faces here that I can see.

    That's nice of you, but I'm still a beginner. 3 years quilting now, and every quilt is a learning experience.

    I've never used M/S paint and didn't even realize I had it until I looked just now. Oh dear, now I'm going to learn how to use it to flip things around like you are doing. Are you using flip and rotate? I can see how it would help to determine whether a fabric will do well as a OBW.

    As usual, I see things others don't - makes me good at reading tea leaves.

    I saw a Manx cat chasing a bat, following a butterfly.
