    Decided it was time to switch out my Autumn colored Ohio Star quilt and put out something that looked a little more like winter. Here's a Kalidescope that I made 2 or 3 years ago. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. You can't see it in the picture but the quilting is done in a varigated thread. I think it's pretty. Thanks for looking.

    Wow, that is stunning! I would love to see the quilting. I just started to hand quilt, really never thought about varigated thread for hand quilting. Is it actually "hand quilting" thread? Thanks for sharing this beautiful quilt.

    Love your quilt. It must take months to hand quilt one that size. Good job.

    Thanks for sharing. I think it is beautiful. I like the ones that are in individual squares.

    Yes, it is hand quilting thread. I don't remember the brand but probably Coats. I use it a lot and don't have any trouble with it. I'll try and post a close up of the quilting.

    You're right. It takes months. This one was probably nine months to a year. That doesn't mean I'm working on it continuously as I squeeze in other projects before it's finished. That's why I always have a stack of tops that need finishing. I just prefer the looks of hand quilting. I think it's worth the time and effort.

    Very pretty....I have done about 8 stack & whacks like this and never get tired of doing another one. I have never done one in Christmas fabrics though.
    Is yours done in Christmas fabric? Whatever it is it is very pretty. I like it set with the sashing.

    No, it's not Christmas fabrics. It's a floral - peachy pink, green leaves, black background. Closest I had that looked wintery. Pretty, but prefer bright springy colors. I'll probably be rusing spring and change this out about February. I really get tired of winter.
