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!

  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  21. 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.
