Finish It Up Friday~ Kaleidoscope

I had a blast making this quilt and I’m so excited to share it with you today!

As a reminder, this is the fabric I started with from Fabric Wholesale Direct .

This looks so complex, but it could not have been easier. I shared my process for making these blocks in this post. They are just six inch hourglass blocks alternating with solid black. The quilt finished at 48 by 60 inches.

I started with two yards of the print. It had 9 pattern repeats over those two yards. I used 8 strips of the repeating pattern and saved one strip to piece into the back.

This next photo shows how bright this quilt really is!

I loved the effect of using four identical triangles rotated and pieced back together. Every block was a delightful surprise.

I love the red thread on black, but I kept the quilting very simple to keep the focus on the fabric.

Thanks to Fabric Wholesale Direct for providing the lovely print fabric for this project. I was pleased with the quality and price. I will have more projects with the rest of the fabric in a few weeks.

Have a great day!
