Kaleidoscope for baby

Here's my latest baby quilt.
I take a quilting class at the local adult school and
this is our latest project/pattern.
I take the class to keep my quilting skills SHARP!!

Let me tell you...
this kaleidoscope pattern quilt was a DOOZY!!!
Oh my goodness!
All those triangles...
All those points to match!!....
All those blocks to square up.....
(don't look too close!  LOL)

It is NOT a quilt pattern for the faint hearted.
;)
I think foundation piecing would make it easier...
(for me)
BUT...
It's done now!!!
Yippee!

I was able to use some fun fabrics on the back.
The cute zebra print came from a pillowcase found at the thrift store!!!

I know.
Crazy luck!

And...
a striped binding is ALWAYS a great thing!!!
My striped fabric stash RARELY lets me down.

So...
I've practiced my precision piecing.
ON to LOOSEY goosey improv!!!!
AND maybe some...
SCrappy HAPPY strips!!!

Happy quilting friends!

  6. I would have guessed foundation piecing! It's fab, I love the way I keep seeing circles on a patchwork that is clearly made of straight lines!
