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)
It's done now!!!

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!

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

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

Happy quilting friends!


  1. I made one of these years ago and it was not sharp looking.:) Yours looks wonderful!

  2. oh I love your quilt and how cute is that animal print strip on the backing!!

  3. It does look a bit difficult, but such a pretty quilt. Great job!

  4. A lovely quilt and I like the giraffe fabric :)

  5. 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!

  6. This looks awesome! I would definitely paper piece a quilt like this too!

  7. Cute quilt! I haven't been brave enough to tackle one of these yet. Kat @

  9. Very cute quilt. Great practice piece, there are a lot of points to match. I love that giraffe print on the back.
