When the Festival rolls around I usually only have one or two quilts to choose from.
Today I will show you my Kaleidoscope Quilt.
I started out making this quilt for our family room,
but once I got sewing it together I realized it was really meant to be for my youngest daughter.
I love when that happens, or even when one quilt sparks inspiration for another.
I've always loved the kaleidoscope block and all of its many variations
and it was perfect for showing off the large scale prints of Kate Spain's Fandango line.
This is the most I've ever quilted a quilt and it was done on my home machine.
I was really, really glad when it was done and about half
way through I was wondering what I was ever thinking.
You can see the quilting design better here from the backside.
I love this quilt.
I love the fabrics, the colors, the pattern
and it's special to both my daughter and me.
