Kaleidoscope

{ I have been overwhelmed by the number of comments being left on my Giveaway Day post. Thank you! The giveaway continues until this Friday, December 16/11. Pop over and enter if you would like a chance to win some Hometown potholders. }

I purchased the Kaleidoscope Quilt pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew when she was having a black Friday sale. Not really with any specific intention for the pattern at that particular moment, I just liked it and it was on sale!


This week, with nothing on the go and feeling the sewing itch, I pulled out the pattern and some fabric that I already had (which I had purchased a while ago....it must have been on sale....I had a lot of it), and got cutting. I had previously used this fabric for my ironing board cover and the rest was just sitting there. The only one of these fabrics that I actually know the identity of is the floral, which is Petal Punch by Hoffman Fabrics.


I affixed the centre circles using Heat 'n Bond Lite, which was easy and worked awesome! So far I have the blocks sewn into pairs, and the rest of the top will (hopefully) come together easily. I was a bit lazy and didn't square my blocks, I'm just going for it and hoping for the best and so far so good. They must have been fairly square to begin with.

This quilt will be going to Bumble Beans Basics.
