What I have been Working on

I recieved Ricky Tim's Kool Kaleidoscope Quilts book recently and kind of got fascinated with the technique of making these fantastic quilts. They are really not hard, just time-consuming! I have made 3 flimsies in the last month or so.

This is the second one I made. I had 2 zebra themed fabrics that I was unsure what to make out of them. Then the idea came while working on my first Kaleidoscope quilt. I also wanted to make a larger quilt, so I used an idea from the book to set the center star on point and make 4 smaller ones for the corners. I rather like the results!

This is the first one I made. I had a hard time at first visualizing what angle to cut the patterns, so the center turned out kind of round instead of star pointy. But it was alot of fun to make, so much so that I made 2 more!

This one is the 3rd, and probably NOT final one! I made this one in baby girl colors, because it is a baby quilt gift for a co-worker.

I loved making these and hope you enjoy looking at them!
God bless

PS-I mixed up the 1st and 3rd photos! Sorry!

I recognize the striped fabric in your second kaleidoscope quilt - I have that fabric! It's about 20 years old!! Your kaleidoscopes are very pretty.
