Q2 Finish-A-Long - Kaleidoscope Quilt

My second finish for the Q2 Finish-A-Long, hosted by Leanne at She Can Quilt, is the Kaleidoscope quilt.

I started this quilt back in July 2011 as part of the quilt along at Don't Call Me Betsy.  It was put on the back burner for well over a year after my templates had printed incorrectly and I subsequently cut my pieces wrong.  The resulting mess could not be fixed at that time as my level of experience wasn't up to it, so I am super pleased that I have been able to resurrect this gorgeous quilt!

Made with mostly Denyse Schmidt Picnic Fairgrounds prints in the blue, green and red colourways, with Kona White for the blocks. 

The back is a gorgeous Cath Kidston stars duvet cover and I used Kona Robin Egg Blue for the binding, it's such a pretty light blue shade.

I quilted a diamond pattern radiating out from the centre of the quilt every 4", I marked it out with masking tape and it came together so quickly.  I'm really pleased with the outcome.

The quilt finishes up at 50"x60" and is off to Devon to the newest addition to our family, a beautiful new baby girl called Mia.

i've got my kaleidoscope top finished too and ready to baste - just looking for the right quilting inspiration to hit.

I really want to try a kaleidoscope quilt one of these days. Was it paper pieced? The colors are lovely.

I've always liked that pattern. It works really well with the DS.

A really great finish! Sometimes projects have to wait until our skills (or courage) catch up with our ambitions (I've had quite a few of those).

But those finishes are all the more sweet because you REALLY appreciate what it took to get them done and can pat yourself on the back for not quitting on it. Kudos!!

It's lovely and one of my favourite patterns of all time. I am so glad you finished it.
