I love string quilts, and scrap quilts. Love making them, love seeing other people’s efforts. So when I was going through my UFOs for possible projects for August’s OMG, looking for something simple, and came across a few kaleidoscope scrap blocks which I had started over two years ago, bingo!
(It will also fit the bill nicely as a community quilt, so that’s another box ticked off. And my quilting club, Christchurch Quilters, are happy to supply batting to its members for community quilts, so that’s another bonus … I’m on a roll, here! 🙂 )
So my OMG challenge for this month is to take these:
Make them up into as many of these as I think I’ll need for a single bed-size quilt:
And then sew them into a flimsy somewhat resembling this:
Nope, wait a minute. That kaleidoscope layout doesn’t really grab me – what about something like this instead …
Yup, the diamond variation wins!
I’ll be linking up with the August Goal Setting party at Red Letter Quilts here – there’s a great variety of projects this month, you should take a look!
