This is my first ever large (large to me) quilt top which is still a work in progress.  Made from my own original graph paper drawing!  I wanted to name it Starburst, but hubby wants to name it... 1.  Speaking Graphically;  2.  From a Galaxy Far Far Away;  3.  Geographic Kaleidoscope!  Any thoughts?

What jumped out at me when I saw this was faceted gem, sparkling gem...something with the word gem because the Jewel tones are dominant.  This is absolutely breathtaking.

Just love it.  Even my husband was impressed when I called him in to see it.  I was fascinated with Kaleidoscopes as a child.  This should use the work Kaleidoscope in the name.

Thanks for sharing.

Just beautiful. How about naming it Kaleidoscope Starburst?

So obviously you are as talented at designing quilts and color use in a quilt as you are at FMQ. A creative gift like yours should not be limited to designing by using graph paper! Do you know about Electric Quilt software? If you want I can easily recreate this design for you in either EQ6 or EQ7 and email you the database. Then you can change colors and shift patterns with the click of a mouse. Electric Quilt allows you to scan in your own fabric, and many current fabric designs have databases of fabric you can download.

Thank you all for your kind words and suggestions!  I mentioned Kaleidoscope Starburst to my husband last night so I took it as a sign when I saw it posted here!  LOL  

Denise... you are so very sweet to offer your services.  Actually, I am very familiar with the EQ6 software and own it.  There is a mac version coming out that I'm waiting on for EQ7!  I drew this out on graph paper first then transferred the design into the software.  It was soo much easier and I was able to change up the design here and there as I went!!  The four corners were completely different on the original drawing and the software allowed me to change it easily!  Also, pieces are 2.5" squares which are then assembled in to a block 5 pieces across and 5 rows down.  Many of the blocks are mirror images of each other and it would have been extremely difficult without the software, especially with my dyslexia!
