Kaleido Planning

The kaleidoscope bits are cut and starting to come together on the design wall.  I noticed laying out the bits and pieces, there is a lot of wastage in the strata layers of fabric.   Being the sort that tries to use every scrap (That’s the point of quilting, right?), I can’t throw out all the funny shaped pieces remaining after cutting the pieces out.  So…. I’m laying out a second smaller star/kaleidoscope with some the fabric strata leftovers.  I’ll lay that out later.

    This is so exciting. It looks great. I love the colors. I was waiting to sew my strata till I received a fabric order yesterday. Plus I have to dig out some dark fabric from one of my bins. But seeing yours, now I really must get going. The book shows a few quilts which use the “waste” in the border. I’m with you about using every scrap so I’m going to try that approach.

  2. WOW! I really like the design and colors!

    About the monochrome challenge: I have been reading a book called Artist to Artist – which is a series of quotes by artists compiled by Clint Brown. In it I came across this fine quote by Edgar Degas “If I could have had my own way, I would have confined myself to black and white.” Interesting, eh? Maybe to really embrace the concept of the monochrome quilt, you should rent a black dog to help with decision-making. 🙂

    Schnap (the Co-Quilter), feels she’s monochromatic enough to design this project. She is height challenged for the current design wall however, and is making an appeal for accommodations so she can more easily provide input.
