Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary cutting, knowledge of color value, chain piecing

Pattern Description:

The points are meant to be cut off; that's my story and I'm sticking to it. The red headed stepchild of "Syncopated Ribbons", "Greta's Kaleidoscope" uses funky piecing of strips and squares to create off kilter blocks that seem to spin like a kaleidoscope.

Much like its predecessor, you really can't screw this quilt up. Lots of fun and looks great in all the new mosaic and modern fabrics! Baby (55" square), lap (55" x 72") and twin (72" x 85") sizes included.
