Kaleidoscope Quilt 2

As a member of the Mt Perry Quilters I participated in their recent kaleidoscope workshop. I have already showed you the second quilt made using this technique.
The first one was from a japanese print. I am currently enthralled with japanese quilts and subscribe to Quilts Japan magazine for my access to viewing their quilts.
Japanese ponds however usually have a bridge, The bridge pieces just would not have "worked" in this quilt.
The little boxes are tricky to make but well worth the effort.
This quilt will be hanging in the Mt Perry Gallery nrxt week.

Welcome to the blog of a passionate quilter. Passionate about colour and everything associated with textiles.
I have been making quilts for about 30 years. My family think I do nothing else but think about quilts. They always seem to be fed, clothed and delivered to their appointments on time so they must be wrong.
I have been blogging for the Mt Perry Quilters for approximately one year. A friend has started her own blog as a result of us blogging for it , so I thought why not for me.
I teach some patchwork workshops when time permits. I will endeavour to show some of my colourful quilts on these pages.
I am currently working on some quilts for The Mt Perry Quilters Exhibition in September 2007. So I will start with one of them.
This a kaleidoscope quilt using some fabrics my mother purchased years ago. 2 different co-ordinating prints. I finally discovered a way to cut them up and turn them into something different. It will be displayed in the Mt Perry Pat Augustine Gallery during September 2007.
