Kaleidoscope of Butterflies - June

More basic kaleidoscopes paired up and sewn
and  more cut ready for sewing.
At this stage I have no idea how big a quilt I might make,
 the finished blocks will be 8"so I certainly need 8 blocks across,
could go 8 down and go for a simple square - we'll see.


So above a few more matched and sewn


with more cut ready to sew tomorrow. 

I have one more small block to piece tomorrow for Gypsy Wife and
Section 5 will then be complete, hopefully posted tomorrow or Friday.

It's going to be a busy few days because I have nine blocks underway for
 the Gwennie Inspired Medallion - button on sidebar - and the first link-up
is on the 6th.

For now I'm linking up with other Kaleidoscope fans and  at
 Fret Not Yourself

  2. It looks great so far! I really like the colours in the blocks you have just cut -- those wonderful Kaffe mint greens and hot pinks.

  8. Beautiful pairings of fabrics in these; I have never attempted kaleidoscope blocks. i do love how they move in and out when put together....(have you seen Cathy's ( @ "sane crazy and crumby quilting") butterfly k's??? I do have an old pattern in a book for paper pieced ones--I would try that i think....hugs, Julierose

  14. Great blocks Maureen, I love the way you put your colours and prints together. The really dark print with purple 'rectangles' reminds me of butterfly wings!
