What was your inspiration?
I took a class at my local quilt shop and really like the fabric. The technique was new to me and I was very pleased with the results. This is one of my favorite quilts and am now working on two more kaleidoscope quilts. All are for queen-size beds.
What are you most proud of?
1. The fabric worked out so well and
2. Each block is very precise although I didn't know how the block would turn out until it was completed.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pin each stack very precisely so that all eight layers line up exactly. One or two pins in a stack will not do it. The centers will be much better if each triangle is exactly the same, use lots of pins to line up the stack of 8 layers. When I skimped on the precise pinning, the blocks were still OK, but not as good as they should be. My first quilt went very well because I followed directions exactly. The one I am working on now isn't quite as precise because I didn't take the time to do enough precise pinning.
