Yep, every single time!

Everytime we cut a kaleidoscope, we never stop with just one. Seeing the fabrics emerge so differently there is a constant desire to just 'see how that fabrics would change' and do 'just one more'

So once you've mastered the ripping and stacking of the Kaleidoscope blocks you can go pretty crazy. The possibilities are endless and wonderful.

To get this result we used the drunkards path template and stacked 4 repeats. The blocks are only half made but we just had to share them with you all.

Whenever you do a kleidoscope the devil really is in the details. Getting your fabrics perfectly aligned and sewing a really accurate seam will get you the best result possible.

We have been asked by a few people who are too far away to come to a class for a pattern. Unfortunately we dont have a pattern for this quilt. It is difficult to put into words and pictures the process of stacking fabrics and lining them up correctly.

Now while this video is not exactly how we like to do them, it will give you an idea of how to get your fabrics lined up. 

We are holding a second kaleidoscope workshop this weekend using the pattern shown below. If you would like to come along, it will be held in our workshop Saturday and Sunday this weekend from 10am - 4pm.

If you would be interested in attending a workshop for the circle kaleidoscope shown at the top of this page, using the Drukards Path template, please call the shop to register your interest. It will be held on a Monday and Tuesday over the coming month. We will need 6 people to run this class. The shop can be contacted on (02) 6836 3606 or email us at
