Hey there. Hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was pretty good, with great springtime weather, some family time, and some sewing thrown in for good measure. I got the center section of Victory Stars all sewn together, and am going to set that project aside for a bit. I will be adding a beautiful border of stars all around the center section, but not for a few months.
I love this project, I really do, but am craving some brighter colors right now. I've got a couple of projects in mind, and will be sharing my plan as soon as I formulate it a bit better.
Have you heard of Hyacinth Quilt Designs? Cindy Lammon is the designer and blog writter, and does some truly beautiful work using more modern fabrics and designs. I am quite smitten with her most recent quilt, Kaleidoscope. You have to go take a look. She has used a palette of orchids and greens from a Heather Bailey collection, and the Kaleidoscope quilt block makes the most interesting visual pattern. This quilt just screams SPRING.
Have any of you made the Kaleidoscope block? I have been looking up construction techniques and there are a number of options. The block can be paper pieced, or you can use templates for cutting, or special rulers. I am stymied as to how to proceed, but know I must make this quilt!
