Glad it has worked out and you have a quilt almost finnished

Determination or a woman on a mission! Good save.


We learn so much via the internet and make many "virtual" friends. And thus a wonderful quilt is born.

Kathy ... aka Nana

So glad you were able to "save" that quilt ... and from what I see, it was well worth it!

Cheers and more happy dancing that you've managed to save this project and turn it into the Kaleidoscope quilt you wanted in the first place. Puzzlement and confusion aside, you've still made all of these blocks and fixed the wonky ones in record time! Applause!!

DH heading for the doctor today - he may have Bell's Palsy just out of the blue. It's my nursing diagnosis anyway. Prayers appreciated.

Your quilt is looking terrific!


Wow, your kaleidoscope looks great. So glad it could be saved. This is a fantastic color combination.


I'm so glad it worked out for you BUT the directions that came with ruler should have clearly explained how the triangles were to be made.

I'm so tired of getting 'burned' by bad patterns/directions! Sorry, I ranted again. :(


yayy! Can't wait to see it finished!


How wonderful you were able to rescue it. But one question (now I don't understand the process and need your help): Why did you have to add triangles to the eight piece blocks with the white background fabric in the pinwheel block i.e. make all the blocks as twelve piece blocks?

Woo-hoo! What a great save! What a wonderful resource, to have access to feedback from math-savvy, experienced and thoughtful readers. And kudos to you for your perseverance. You are going to have a beautiful quilt!


I'm glad you were able to make use of the blocks in the design you wanted even if it does mean more blocks because they are smaller. I have to say, though, that it looks like you have to cut off a lot of fabric when using this ruler? Those look like wicked big scraps in the picture with the orange and white block that you just toss? Or are those pieces that large because you are having to cut it down smaller? I don't mind "trimming" blocks a bit, but that looks like more than a trim.


That looks like a great ruler/template for this block. What a great save. I see an appliqued border in your future> ;-)

It looks so good! I'm glad you were able to salvage it.


Yay! Love the way it's looking :)


Whee!!! They look terrific. Quilt MATH gets me far too often. Thank goodness for helpers with better brains'

Marylou Hansen

I'm glad you saved the quilt and had the patience to figure it out. I hope you'll be doing a tutorial so the rest of us don't make the same mistakes.


It looks so nice! Great save!

Nicole, I fear I would have made the same mistake. I am not one your math-savvy, spatially non-challenges readers. But thank goodness they are out there! So glad you were able to fix it - that feels *so* good!! I've been there before. o:)

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts

It is really looking fantastic! I'm so glad you were able to save it. Have a great weekend!


Yay! Well done for persevering !!
