    I've posted a picture of the fabric (the last picture).
    I didn't understand what do you want to ask me with the "how"... I did it with the classical kaleido technique... on youtube you may find videos, for sure...

    I didn't use any specific ruler... I've cut two triangles in palstic (I did my templates) and I've marked a lot of specific details of the fabric in these triangles, for me to be sure to cut exactly in the same position...

    Did I answer your question??? :wink:

    Lovely design. I like how you have made your blocks up. Sometimes I find the kaleidoscope hard to look at, lots of color - but this I like. Well done.

    That's kind of neat, when you are doing any of the kaleido variations! When I tried 4PP I did just that, cut strips down the side of the fabric to try it out. That way I knew if I didn't like what resulted I hadn't wasted a whole bunch of fabric.

    How wide would these strips be that you can buy? Or perhaps it varies as to the fabric? Are there other uses? or is it pretty much just for quilting uses. Kind of like a jelly roll, I guess, just one fabric!

    Of course I liked it ... and continued on to cut up the rest of the piece!! :)
