    Happy Kaleidoscope

    This one is not finished yet as I haven't decided on whether to add a border. I had fun playing with the kaleidoscope blocks and their settings. The guild I belong to is working on finishing UFO's this year. Need to finish this one soon and move on to all the others!

    Great blocks! I think I would do the last sashing in blue and then a larger border in the original fabric if you have enough.

    I agree, small blue border will finish setting it off. Love the blocks and colors, it's fantastic.

    Absolutely stunning. The blue sashing makes it really pop and I agree with Tartan, last sashing should be the blue. Border....not sure!

    I love it. It is beautiful. How about the same blue for the border?

    Oh it is so fun and cheerful. I agree with Tartan about putting the sashing and then another border. It could be the same print or pull out a color you would like to really pop in the quilt like the green for a calmer border.

    Wonderful. It is a happy quilt. Have you posted a pic of the original fabric? Would love to see it!
