The fabric had to have a 24 inch pattern repeat and I was soon to discover that there are not many of these around. They're mostly only Kaffe Fassett or Phillip Jacobs fabrics that have that sort of repeat although I shall be eyeing up fabrics with a view to their pattern repeat for some time I think.
I chose Becca in the green/ blue colourway by Kaffe Fassett. This is my fabric after lining up 8 exact pattern repeats to make the kaleidoscopes. It is quite hard work cutting through 8 layers of fabric in one go and I got through a few blades on my rotary cutter.
This is Patti's demonstration quilt with the 2 blocks (one large kaleidoscope with corners added and one mid size kaledoscope with 4 small ones in the corners)
This is Lynne who had my favourite fabric from Phillip Jacobs producing the most beautiful kaleidoscopes.
This is the lovely Kerry modelling her kaleidoscopes with Sue behind.

I really enjoyed the class and will post the quilt top when(!!!) it is finished.
