The Kaleidoscope Quilt was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer to show the possibilities of mixing and matching our 22″ diamonds to create an exploded star quilt layout. The project requires (24) diamond blocks. We chose the Basket Star and Woven star for this design. We are also introducing a paper pieced background block in this layout. The quilt requires paper piecing and traditional piecing skills, including curved piecing, to complete.
- To expand the 68″ to a 99″ Queen, purchase one of the 242D borders listed under the Buy Now button.
- To expand the 68″ to an 80″ Wall Quilt, add a 257C border of your choice listed under the Buy Now button.
- To expand this to a 118″ King, add a 257C Border, then a 118″ King Border of your choice listed under the Buy Now button.
