I cut my Kaleidoscope project today.  I had a friend help me get over the intimidation of cutting wrong.  I am using a fabric that I love so the project will go easier.  I have 56 blocks cut so far. …Continue

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

I don't know where you can get the pattern, but I did get on "Cluck cluck sew", and got one that is paper pieced, I'll have to try that one..

Hi All! I would love to try to make a Kaleidoscope quilt. I've clicked on the link where the pattern is suppose to be but I get an error message? Am I too late or is there a problem?

Thanks Ginny!  I just stacked 4 panels, matched everything and then cut     2 3/4" strips, as explained in the technique section - no fussy cutting. The strips were cut into 2 3/4" squares. When you assemble 4 of these square, it's interesting to see all the different kaleidoscope flowers.

Here is a sample of some of my 4-patch blocks.

Why can't I download the link for the pattern????  I click on it and it says that it cannot display the page....

Traci and Gico, very nice projects.  Love how the flowers came through on this.  Lovely.....  Sure is impressive and looking at the starter fabric, did you fussy cut to get the smaller flowers or did the big ones become smaller ones?

At long last, I just completed two projects with some of my 4-patch kaleidoscope blocks.

It all started with this fabric.













A table runner
































and then a quilt.


Those were made with the light blocks.  I still have to figure out what to do with my darker blocks.
