The Jeweled Kaleidoscope is a foundation paper pieced pattern, that comes together easily and quickly. It is available in two block sizes - 6" and 12". I chose to make the 12" blocks in vibrant jewel tones of gold, amethyst, platinum and pewter, using various fabrics from Anna Maria Horner, Joel Dewberry, Dear Stella, Kate Spain, Blueberry Park and Kona solids in yarrow and geranium. Binding is an Art Gallery Oval Elements. The result is this beautiful vibrant mini quilt which will grace my sewing room wall. Quilting was done in my favourite method, outline stitching in straight lines, though I deviated on the appliqued circles and quilted a curved diamond shape.
It is quite amazing how different it looks with different fabrics and colours, check out variations from the other pattern testers here.
I really love how this turned out, so have subsequently added a scrappy version of this to my never reducing "one day" quilt list.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to test this Allison.
