    Very pretty - Looks just like the images seen in a kaleidoscope! I think the colors are fabulous!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Pretty, pretty Lots of times people put the original fabric for a border so you can be amazed at how fantastic the kaleidoscopes turned out.

    I agree! This is a beautiful top.

    I just bought a Spin Art machine to use with fabric and some screen print ink that I found at Michaels for really cheap. I know that's not what you did but your quilt will be my inspiration as I start making of 5" blocks. Love it!!!!!

    Very colorful. I think a blue border would help finish it off.

    This is one of the most striking kaleidoscope quilts I've seen. The blue sashing is great. Could you use your original fabric is an outer border. Or perhaps, incorporate some of it on the back. I always think it is fun to see the original to see how the maker chose to cut the sections of the pattern. Whatever you choose to do will be great-you have a really stunning quilt!

    Nice! Like how all the blocks are different yet the same in feel! I agree with a blue border and the original fabric either for another border or binding.

    great blocks. I would border with the original fabric if you have enough. I like to show an example of the fabric that made the blocks on my K quilts.

    I agree with the many. Sashing in blue and maybe if you have enough material of the prints (or one of) use that for the border.

    Totally agree! If you don't have enough of the original fabric, if you find one with similar colors, it'll work. It doesn't have to match, it has to "go".

    You got it right! This is a happy quilt. Nobody would get depressed sleeping under this one! The intensity of print colors is great with the blue.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    I sure like the setting and the way you alternated the blue and cream background blocks. This os my favorite block style. Gorgeous.
