The Kaleidoscope Quilt Along Starts Today!

I keep forgetting how to spell Kaleidoscope, but WHATEVER!

Today the quilt along started on DON'T CALL ME BETSY'S BLOG.

I printed out my templates and the instructions and chose some fabrics. Note the holes punched in my instructions. I can put them in a notebook for future reference.

My version of the quilt will be a baby girl's quilt. I'm going to use some very bright colors.

Tonight I started cutting the strips. This weekend I will use the templates to cut out the shapes.

Here is a picture of a quilt using the kaleidoscope pattern, just so you can get an idea of how it turns out. Once the blocks are put together, a secondary shape develops and seems to dance across the quilt.

Good idea to print out the instructions for future use... you may be sure I'll be copying your idea!

Good luck! Your color choices make it a sure winner. I am not joining this one, but I will watch and cheer you on.
