I was catching up on some blog reading when I found this post from Linda at koka quilts. Now I was all about being in love with kaleidoscopes, after seeing Cathy's (and more here) (and I could keep linking for another hour - she made a whole bunch of gorgeous blocks!) (but I won't, because I want to finish this post) (eventually), and I still am in love with them. I've got two done so far:
and I have dreams of making lots and lots and lots more.
But seeing Linda's made me go 'whooo' and have to fan myself. Go look, if you haven't already. Seriously, go.
So I grabbed some 2" strips in blues and blue-ishes and purples and purple-ishes (a thousand thanks for the accent color, Angela!!) and started stitching.
I was only going to make one block, of course. Maybe two. Just to see what it would look like.
Because I'm already making a kaleidoscope quilt for RSC.
So I made a couple of blocks.
And, you know. A couple more. Because there I was. With that ruler and all.
And I really like the first kind of kaleidoscopes, where there are two colors alternating in the block. And I really like this second kind, too, with multicolors in each block.
So, you know how I'm making my 365 quilt and my other 365 quilt?
Now I seem to be making my kaleidoscope quilt and my other kaleidoscope quilt.
I'm not entirely sure why this keeps happening. I may have some self control issues.
Speaking of self control issues, I made some more piglets. (Who just laughed?)
Just because he isn't plaid is no reason not to love him. He's a perfectly respectable pig.
And he has a couple of little friends. They're not rainbow piglets, though.
But they are plaid...
I'll be linking with ScrapHappy Saturday at So Scrappy. Rainbows galore!
And special thanks to Sally T for designing the Perfect Piglet. I think it's my favorite pattern ever!
