Happy New Year!
What better way to start the new year than with a new quilt?
January is my month in the That Stash Bee. I chose the Kaleidoscope block. It’s one I’ve had my eye on for a long time. I love the optical illusion that is created when the light and dark fabrics play together.
Here are two that I put together for the bee.
You’ll notice I went with my favorite color scheme: pink and orange. I also added a bit of red. I decided to go with low volume prints for the lights. This is the first time I’ll be branching out from my usual solid white or off-white background. I was inspired by Toni of HoosierToni to give them a try. So far, I’m liking them!
If you are interested in making a Kaleidoscope quilt, check out the Quilter’s Cache where you’ll find the block pattern for free here.
In other news, tomorrow I will celebrate two years of blogging at Mama Love Quilts! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the gift I’ll be giving away to one lucky reader.
Until then…happy stitching to you!
