    It is absolutely fascinating to me that you can make so many different blocks out of the same fabric!! (I have a small mind--it does not take a lot to fascinate me :lol: )

    I placed my blocks on black fabric for a better contrast. The pink on the left is a fabric I am thinking about incorporating into the border. The floral on the far left is the fabric that all of these blocks are made from!
    Marcia, you will never look at a print in the same way --- especially a large print. Since I did a kaleidoscope (from the Stack and Whack book) quilt, I disect prints to see what I could come up with. It's so amazing that you got such different blocks. They are simply beautiful. And setting them on the black is outstanding. :thumbup:

    That is just amazing Marcia, I love the way you get such a lot of different blocks from the same fabric.

    Bet cha never heard that one before. lol
    I love your Kaleidoscope quilt blocks. I would take a class if I could find one here in Denver. Your choice of colors are beautiful.
    Anyway, where did you get the pattern or what size are the triangles????
    I could probably trace a dinner plate onto paper, cut it into 8 pieces and add seam allowance.
    the pattern might give tips or whatever to make it go together easier.

    Thank you in advance.

    Do you think you could learn from a book? If so, the book I used was MAGIC STACK-N-WHACK QUILTS by Bethany S. Reynolds. The pictures and directions are very clear. I'm sure there are other good books as well. This method begins by stacking fabric in a specific way and cutting through all layers, then using one stack (of which each piece in the stack has the very same design on it). The next stack will be different bc it comes from a different area on the piece of fabric.

    Perhaps the old Simply Quilts will have a demo on this technique. I saw Reynolds' demo on SQ many years ago.
