I pulled out this quilt top at the beginning of October, with the goal to get it quilted and bound by Halloween. Hahaha!
The top started as a creative playtime exercise in using the 4 patch posie technique. The fabrics were scraps leftover from a baby quilt I made for my niece. My kaleidoscope blocks were a little limited due to the scraps I had available, and the small repeat design of the fabric. Still, I had fun with the process!
I finally finished stitching the binding down last week. Now it will be ready for next Halloween!
I wanted the quilting to reflect the zig-zag pattern of the orange background fabric. Straight line quilting with my walking foot - nothing fancy.
Quilted diamonds in the borders.
Kinda hard to see, but there are concentric stars inside the blocks.
One of my favorite blocks.
I think I've done enough with the 4 patch posie idea (how about some 4 patch parrots?), now I need to tackle a different kaleidoscope shape!
