The kaleidoscope One Block Wonder is finished! I just flew through this project. It was so inspiring I just couldn't not work on it. Those snow days sure helped a lot too.
I know in all reality you've seen each and every piece of this quilt as it was basted, so the only real new item is the binding in white with little blue polka dots and the quilting.
I did a wave pattern on each diagonal through the quilt. The center is so busy I didn't think a crazy quilt design would really shine. With all of the spins and twists the center gave I wanted to keep true to the original design of the fabric and incorporate a really structured geometric shape. If you remember,the fabric itself had all these beautiful flowers and then all of these geo-shapes clustered in the background. I went with a simple grid pattern on the border of the quilt. It gives the eyes a place to settle-- the middle!
Whallah! All done! It took two movies to finish that binding. An afternoon well spent.
I am more and more in love with the backing. I have a tendency to overdo it when it comes to color (ask the hubby). It just seemed to fit so perfectly though and boy how! I LOVE it!
So I finished the One Block Wonder! Now what? I am at a total loss for the next project. I have a feeling I will be digging out a quilt kit that has been set aside for two years. It is finally calling me.
