    Kaleidoscope quilt

    My kaleidoscope quilt. I'm anxious to get it quilted so I can start another one.
    Also shown is the orginal fabric.

    I love your Kaleidoscope Qiult! I've always loved kaleidocopes. I have a minature one that was given to me. The quilt mimics a real kaleidoscope exactly. Where can I find instructions on how to make one?

    This is one of the prettiest I've seen. Gotta remember that from unexpected fabric comes beautiful work.

    My DD bought the UGLIEST fabric on sale for a stack n whack class we were taking. The quilt was beautiful when finished. I think color and pattern of the fabric is what made it so interesting.

    It looks fantastic! I love how each block is a surprise even from the same fabric.

    I love your choice of fabric. I really feel those striped border prints make the BEST OBW blocks. They remind me of Italian tiles. Lovely!

    I love your quilt - the colors are great. I am a huge fan of William Morris patterns and palette, and your quilt reminds me of his designs! I am always amazed at the transformation from fabric to kaleidescope, so thanks for posting both.

    That fabric is wonderful in your kaleidoscope quilt. Do show again once its quilted.
