kaleidoscope quilt


One of my students popped into the shop today to show me her completed kaleidoscope quilt.

Notice the binding?  She didn't have enough border fabric to completely bind her quilt so she has cleverly scattered the theme fabric randomly in the binding.
I love clever ideas.

Working with all sorts of fibres - sometimes its just nice to make something a little different.  A small project that has taken a couple to months (when I have a spare moment) - I have knitted hexagons using King Cole Riot wool to make a throw cushion for my dinning room.

Was a lot of fun - something different and on a small scale.
Now back to quilting.  Starting to work on my FINAL- yes my FINAL kaleidoscope quilt.

Meshwork Class at Krazy Cow

Another sucessful class at Krazy Cow Levin yesterday.
Note how the light colours make the babyblocks "ping"

 This student came back for a second class session and challenged herself to making the star block.

Kaleidoscope - Wellington Sewing Serivces

It doesn't matter how many Kaleidoscope classes I teach, I still get excited watching the formation of spinning blocks.  Here are samples from yesterday's class below.


 Happy stitching
