    I've never attempted a kaleidoscope before but I've loved every one I've seen so I hope you give it a go. I've always loved this one:

    How did you cut the pieces for the block? Templates? Which? Stack-and-whack?
    I saw a template that looks great for this but have been unable to find one.

    These are just two of a number of blocks that really need to get finished into a quilt...well when I'm not so busy maybe...after Christmas maybe...on day, lol.

    Yes I do but I will need to re-upload them, those ended up small because the photo upload manager was being temperamental. I am about to dash out to the shops so I will do it when I get back.

It's fantastic fun seeing how each block will turn out and how different they can be from the same fabric.

    Jenny has a tutorial on the piecing of this style blocks using the turnover pack and its cute but each triangle is a different fabric so you don't get the true kaleidoscope effect. The thrill of these blocks is in the cutting of the pieces.



    Huh, again regardless of the size I make the photo it comes out big, this photo problem really needs some attention...HuHum...AL...pretty please.
    Lynn do you have larger pictures of these blocks that I could see?

    My picture looks huge on my computer, is it enormous on everyone else's?
    Jill, the pic is large but great for really seeing it. Thank you for the link to Alice Kay's. What a prolific woman! Ye gads, she has been busy.
