    It's beautiful and intriguing. What pattern did you use?

    Thanks so much for posting this! I've signed up for a kaleidoscope class and yours is a wonderful inspiration.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Gorgeous quilt, you did a great job. I would also love to see a picture of the original fabric.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Very nice. After you have the star shapes sewn, how do you get them to match or what do you do next? I am at that point in what I am doing. And I do not know how to join them to make a top.

    Just Wonderful! Looks like the blocks are coming right up off the quilt. Lovely kaelidoscopes! Are they difficult to make?? Thanks for sharing.
