This is a quilt that I made for my sister-in-law. The kaleidoscope fabric was so captivating, it reminded me of the many facets of her. Marla Vagts
marla, beautiful i love the colors. is it a stack and whack? gini
Looks like a Paula Nadelstern type kaleidoscope quilt. Much more complicated and many more pieces than the usual stack and whack. I have one kaleidoscope that I am making into a wall hanging with embellishment. To make a whole quilt of these is quite an undertaking. A lot of work to get those mirror images in the kaleidoscope. If it is stack and whack it would still be dozens of pieces per each block.
I have her snow flake kaleidoscope quilt book too and hope to do one of those some day.
Magnificent job. One of the most intricate quilts I have seen on this site yet.
I have to agree. This is one of the most interesting quilts I have ever seen. I just love it.
I have gone to quite a few quilt shows and have never seen any like it.
Have you considered putting it in a show.
What a tremendous amount of work.

Marla your quilt is amazing. I love the colors and the blocks are unbelievable. Where did you find the pattern. Excellent work with astonishing results.
Marla, Are the fabrics from Benartex Nuance Kaleidoscope Collection? They are gorgeous, and you did a beautiful job with your quilt. I'm sure your sister in law will love it!
Gorgeous quilt Marla. I love it.
Your quilt is exquisite. Your sister-in-law is lucky to get this!
Beautiful quilt and great workmanship Marla. One challenge I haven't done yet but would like to attempt.
Your sister-in-law must be really excited to receive this wonderful quilt! This is a really nice job!
Wow... Marla, this one is eye-popping! Looks very complicated. Nice job!
Wow, wow....... this is one amazing quilt. I love the fabric and the colors. I agree with Cecile.....it is eye-popping and it looks very complicated.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments. It is not at all compicated--Benartex Nuance Kaleidoscope Collection makes the piecing so easy. It was a free pattern that I found through the Hancocks and Paducah catalog--I changed it from square to rectangular from the pattern.
Wow! I TOTALLY LOVE THIS QUILT! Its just beautiful! You are so kind and generous to make this for your sister-in-law! Really, really lovely! Way to go Marla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
I absolutely love kaleidoscopic designs in quilting. I think your finished product was stunning. Was it a Stack and Whack pattern? Irregardless Marla, it is full of the 'WOW' factor from my perspective. Great job!! Your SIL is one lucky recipient.
You have done a wonderful job. I really like the effect you achieved and the colors. Your sister in law will love it.
I love this quilt one of my friends wants to do a kalidescope pattern ans I must show her yours.
Wow, what a beautiful quilt. How many hours did it take you to make? Looks like quite an undertaking. Thanks for sharing.
I soooooo want to make a Kaleidoscope quilt and I have the ruler but don't know where to start...suggestions? Online pattern? Do I really need to buy ANOTHER book?
