my first suggestion would be to go to ehow.com ( you can also get instructions for making a homemade template there, if you don't want to buy one) or  go to utube and view videos so that you can actually see what happens when you make a kaleidoscope. i love the free instuctional videos that you can see and learn from on lots of web sights.  mine is made with octogons, but you can do them with simple squares, hexagons, or even using a fan method. the trick is the repeats of fabric that are stacked and cut exactly alike. if you want to do one like mine , your fabric will require 8 design repeats.  view some of the videos and let me know what you think. then we can go from there. i think actually seeing what is done is so much better than just hearing about it. because even though it's not hard it is kind of tedious on the stacking and whacking since it is imparative that it be acurate. let me know.!!

                                            you have a merry christmas too!!! :)

grace, are you familiar with how a kaleidoscope goes together?  because the first thing you have to do is find a fabric that you love the colors on, that has a lot of movement and then be comfortable with ripping it apart. LOL.

thank you so much grace. nothing wrong with having hippie in you. at least you are peaceful i bet, LOL . this is truly a beautiful , all be it funny and bright quilt. it was a hoot to make too since all of the kaleidoscopes come out so differently. it keeps it interesting. but the hardest thing to do is to stop making them, cause you always want to know what the next one will look like. :)

Sounds like lots of fun projects at once. You know the saying- too much material so little time. But you'll have many more in the future too. Ideas with fabric are endless!

Welcome Quilter Friend!

Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.

My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.

So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. (Good choice for Christmas gifts, or yourself, because the ebooks are on sale now!)

I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?

Happy quilting and reading!

Linda Hubalek
