Kaleidoscope - one more block to go!

The original size of my Kaleidoscope quilt has shrunk!
I'm going with 6 across and 8 down  - I think.
For this size I need one more block, the one I had in place
bottom right just didn't fit colour-wise.


Then I wondered if I should move out some of the
lighter blocks and go for a darker look - on reflection I've
decided to just get on and sew another block.
This is not the final layout, I want to play a little more
before I make a decision.

Fabrics for the back of the Rainbow Safari quilt for our grandson


have been cut


and fabric with cats - same colours as the kiwi fabric -
has been added to the mix, also multi coloured dragonflies
on a black background. Top is sewn and I'll post next time.

More from the Spring garden

Bluebells

Clivia
Babiana

It's been so very wet her, we desperately need
 a few sunny days to dry everything out.

Now I need to get sewing that last block!

What a gorgeous kaleidoscope this will be! I think the corners will change the value of this quilt so I wouldn't worry about it being too light or dark yet. Thanks for linking with Kaleidoscope of Butterflies.

Love that quilt, and the Babiana, I had some last year, must fossick and find them. a friend gave me some pink bluebells, so they are in a large pot, I don't want to lose them.

Just such a rich color quilt! It seems time consuming- hope you get the extra block done and can do the final arrangement. I have always loved clivia, but never owned any, sorry to say.

I wouldn't change a block! I think the blocks you have will work just fine with a little adjustments. I think it will be lovely!

Lots of Kaffe colour there in your kaleidoscope blocks, amazing! Wondering now what's going in those setting triangles of course! And lots of lovely colour in your garden too, great pics!

You look to be on the homeward straight with your kaleidoscope blocks, and fun to be onto another project too! Far too wet up here as well, oh for a week of sunshine, it would do wonders!

What a good feeling to only have one more block to make to finish a top. Beautiful spring blooms to inspire your wonderful colour choices.

Beautiful Kaleidoscope blocks, it's going to be a stunning quilt. Very pretty flowers. Hope it drys out a bit.

What a gorgeous set of kaleidoscope blocks! I love all the fabrics, they really glow! And I love that kiwi fabric, that is so cute! I bet it has sold well. :D

Oh! Look at all that glorious color! I'm drooling on my keyboard...

Kaja said...

Your Kaleidoscope blocks are gorgeous en masse. I don't think you needed to take out the lighter ones - somehow the whole effect is very rich and opulent even with their inclusion.

Such beautiful blocks! Obviously, it's going to be gorgeous when completed!!!
