Bought the fabric for this kaleidoscope quilt a few weeks ago and have been dying to have a go. It is amazing that it is made from one piece of fabric which is cut up and sewn together again in such a way as to form different kaleidoscopes (from the book One Block Wonders). I want to make another one already!
I'll always be on the look out for large patterned fabric now, every time I visit a quilt shop......

Once I started putting it together the fabric took over and although I didn't intend to make a purple quilt somehow this happened!
I'm really pleased how it all went together, as I had made my calculations months ago but just took a deep breath and made the patterns - then amazingly all the pieces went together perfectly without any squeezing or stretching!
Now to hand quilt it ready for next year's show.....
Have also changed my sewing room - I realised that my cosy corner of the bedroom was just not big enough so have decamped to the games room downstairs and can now make even more mess than before.
I also discovered my miniature quilts that have been lying, forgotten, in the bottom of a drawer!
