Crazy for Kaleidoscopes

I started out with this fabric . . .

2013-10, In the Beginning fabric
Autumn Harvest by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning Fabrics

. . . and wound up with this:

2013-10, kaleido block 1
Kaleido Block 1

and this:

2013-10, kaleido block 2
Kaleido Block 2

and this:

2013-10, kaleido block 3
Kaleido Block 3


Can you see now why I’m crazy about kaleidoscopes?! I think I will turn these 16″ blocks into a table runner celebrating autumn, “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.”

    Okay, love Jason Yenter, but more importantly I love that 3rd block!! The center created what looks like a frilly poppy or something. Just a touch of the magic that kaleidoscope blocks bring!

    Of course I love it. What beautiful expression of the season’s colors and fast changing appearance of colors and sunlight. Thank you for bringing me this moment of beauty, Dawn. You are a poet with fabric. No words needed, no words could do justice.

    A table runner of those blocks would look just great on my table. I would even be willing to repaint the kitchen in those colors. How could you ever cut into that gorgeous fabric? Very stunning!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Another use could be for individual placemats.
