    Thank you, ladies. I learned it very hard to chose out the right spot to cut out on the right fabric to work on.
    It does need to have the knack of trying this. I should have known one before I tried it.

    One thing I usually do when I am adding a yoyo to the center I pick a spot on the original fabric that I think will go with the center of my Kaleidoscope. If you have a pretty busy K then you want a yoyo that will blend rather than contrast. But your K is not that busy so the contrast works really well. It gives it some interest to go with the K

    They are very pretty! Sometimes I think some I havae made are too busy and that is why I don't like them. It is a balancing act! I made two out of some bird fabric and I don't know if I like them or not. I will post them when I have time. You can tell me what you think.

    Oh someone shortened Kaleidoscope to K on one thread and I picked it up. I had complained that Kaleidoscope was such a long word! And when I saw that I liked it and started using it.

    Well done, youme! :lol:
    I think "K" in this case is short for Kaleidoscope! :? We just don't want to spell out the entire word!
