Last Saturday Dawn and I took a kaleidoscope quilt class together. I have 15 of my 30 blocks finished and since it may be a while until I get to the other 15, I wanted to share this part with you.

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!

I want to have one like that!! Isn't it amazing that so many different looks can be acheived with just one fabric. Keep up the good work.

That is absolutely stunning! I love the colors and am amazed that all of the designs came from one floral print! :)
