We had a good time at Studio Stitch with the magic kaleidoscope class. It’s always fun to see the fabric people pick and how the blocks turn out. For the first student, I managed to get both a photo of the fabric and a photo of some of the blocks:
For two students, I failed to get any pictures at all! For the remainder, I got pictures of blocks only:
I thought all the students did a great job!
And my class demonstration quilt came back from the quilter, so here it is:
And here’s the back, showing my effort to get rid of all related fabrics!
Stats for my quilt:
Name: Sassaman Kaleidoscope
Finished size: 52″ x 62″
Designed and made by: me
Quilted by: Elisabeth Pugh
Taking one of your classes is on my wish list. I love how you pieced the backing.
It’s apparent that a print with a more clearly defined, graphic quality, is the most effective way to make a kaleidoscope quilt. Yours is really lovely because it perfectly emphasizes spots of design within the print. No doubt you’re a great teacher, and I’m happy for you to have had interested students.
Your demo quilt is stunning. The block in the far right in the middle row of your detail photo is quite a cool ‘surprise’ result!
It’s always fun to see what happens 😀
Your kaleidoscope quilt came out awesome and I love that you used sections of the fabric you used to create the blocks for the back! The back is visually appealing also!
Loved seeing the process pix of your students. This tells me they were a busy, happy class–glad you had such great results (not like my failure, last week). I love your final quilt with the black background: stunning!
