Forty blocks with 8 points on the edges and another thirty blocks with 4 points on the edges add up to way too many points to match! Let’s just say the assembly of the kaleidoscope quilt slowed to a crawl and I sewed just a few rows each day. This was not happy quilting, but I will say that in the end it was worth it for the final result.
The flimsy measures measures 69” x 93”, which is a generous twin size. It also made my two kids, who are now both taller than me, feel short. They had to stand on chairs and raise their arms up to hold this for me. You wouldn’t believe the cries of “Hurry up and take the picture! This is heavy!”
I need to piece a simple back then pop into the quilt shop for some black batting before I can get this basted. I plan to hand quit this one so I’ll have a slow stitching project to work on in the evenings. I think I know what I want to quilt on it and I’m impatient to get started. Hubby has the car today, though, so the batting run will have to wait until tomorrow.
