    I like that fabric, too. Each one turns out differently so yours will not look like mine. I have another fabric I think would be good. It has a lot of white space in it, so I'm not sure.

    My edge only says "exclusively printed for Hobby Lobby" They have a website.

    1. Determine fabric repeat. (Mine was about 18". I only worked with half width of fabric for stacking ease.)
    2. Layer fabric to match up repeats exactly. Pin pin pin. Use as many layers as you plan for your block. Mine has 8. But you can do this with other amounts like 6 if you do hexes, or you can do Dresden fans etc. you can get brave and do a medallion with twenty. Just be sure when you purchase fabric to count the repeats you need before cutting.
    3. Cut all layers for your shape needed. This stack is a "book" I read.
    4. Sew your blocks from each book.
    5. Depending on the pattern of block you chose you may additional steps to add background fabric.

    This is similar to doing stack n whack.

    I really love the look of these kaleidoscope blocks. The day guild had a class on them but I work during the day so I missed out. Would love to learn these. You did such a wonderful job on them. Can't wait to see the finished top.....
