    More Dresden Kaleidoscopes by Rhonda

    I have been playing with more fabric for Dresden Kaleidascopes. I love to see what comes out of the fabric.

    Here is a set of 6 all from the same fabric.

    My dKs are 8" so they would work for your 10 1/2" background block. I can send you a free template if you send me your postal address. I also can send it electronically if you can trace it onto clear plastic and cut it out.

    Thank you everyone for your nice comments! I love making these. They really arent' that hard. I do end up having to fuss with the seams a bit as I end up tightening the seams toward the center some times to get it to lay flat.

    As to the center I usually make a flat yoyo and top stitch it on the center.

    I won't be making a quilt with these they will be going into my online store.

    They're lovely! I'm about to make my first kaleidoscope and I hope my blocks turn out as beautiful as yours.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Thank you everyone. Yes there is wastage. Until just recently I didn't worry about it too much but I have decided to try using the leftovers in crazy blocks. How much is left depends on the fabric and how many repeats you can get out of it. But I am sure the leftovers can be used for other things. It's just a matter of thinking about it.

    I never would have thought of doing a Dresden as a kaleidoscope. Yours are gorgeous. You sure got a lot of different looks from the one fabric.
