Kool Kaleidoscope Block

A while back a dear friend sent me a kit.  Somehow it got buried and forgotten.  This past week I found it.  Then I traced the templates, adding the quarter inch seam allowance, and cut them out.

Tonight I finished sewing it.  The center was "less than perfect" so I appliquéd a circle over the center.  It is still less than perfect, but hopefully I will find a place to use it where it will shine.


Till next time,

It might be less than perfect but it looks good to me.

I love those kaleidoscope blocks. I have never attempted one, though because I get stumped at the first step - picking out fabric!

all of the colors would have confused me....I think it looks great.....

I would not have known that the circle wasn't intended to be there. Niiice!

Barb said...

Great idea about the circle....I have done stuff like that before. You know I just love this block!!!

It looks fabulous, Gene! I've always wanted to do a kaleidoscope one but I get hung up on the fabric choices that would work best for it.

Love the kaleidoscope and would love to try one but it looks soooo hard. Make a nice wall hanging with it, it really needs to be displayed.

That is spectacular!

Everything done by hand is less than perfect, but that's what makes it special -- doesn't look like it was created by a cookie-cutter machine. This is the perfect kit for you, being so colorful. It shines all by itself, just frame it!

What wonderful colors. It definitely reminds me a kaleidoscope - love the patterns those things form. You may not think it's perfect but it looks beautiful to me!!

I always liked Kaleidescopes, and the fabric you chose is great. You should see the one Ricky is making on the Quilt Show.
