The guest speaker at the quilt guild last Thursday night was Marilyn Foreman designer of kaleidoscope quilts. She brought four suitcases full of quilts she designed using large print fabric.
It's basically a stack 'n wack method and she has designed the quilt blocks using the kaleidoscope block in the center of a 12-inch block.
and the focus fabric..
then, I had to start making kaleidoscope blocks.
These are kind of addicting. I had to make a trip to the quilt shop for more fabric. Do you think I need a 12-step program? I guess there are worse things to be addicted to.
I finished the top. What do you think? It measures 60 x 60. Now, another quilt shop visit to search for backing fabric. It never really ends, does it?
Marilyn has patterns to construct 9 blocks in her book along with project options. You can construct large quilts, wall hangings, table toppers or runners using her designs. I'm going to keep my eye out for more large print fabric for future projects to feed my addiction.
Stay cool today.
