    Kaleidoscope Star top recently done

    Really like how this one came out. I wasn't sure there was enough variety in the fabric but I think it worked just fine.

    Haven't decided how I want to quilt it. Something simple for sure. Will use black for the binding.

    You have to make your pictures larger! It looks beautiful - but I want to see more detail!

    Beautiful! I like the idea of black binding and a simple all over FMQ design so not to take away from the kalidescope design blocks.

    It is lovely and I agree that a simple quilting design will have the most impact.

    Thanks all for the kind words! This is my favorite of the three kaleidoscope/OBW ones I've done. Wish I had taken a picture of the really bright one I gave my SIL for Christmas. I did the star points in navy for it. I'm thinking of adding the star points to the OBW one as I'm having real problems with the border and getting the whole thing to lay flat.

    I just followed the tutorial on this board by cutebuns for OBW. Then I asked on this board for suggestions of how to show off the individual motifs. One of the suggestions was adding the triangles to create the stars. So you just cut triangles of the accent fabric the same size as the triangles you cut for your kaleidoscopes.
