Kaleidescopes

Sonata :

I've always loved kaleidescopes . Even tiny ones are entrancing , though difficult to photograph !



This is maybe why making miniature quilts is so appealing . The geometric shapes and colour combinations and the unpredictability of a One Patch is a constant surprise .
It's very relaxing and definitely addictive . For those of you who don't quilt , there is a game on zefrank.com , where you can have hours of fun building an endless series of kaleidescopic images on screen , though vertigo might ensue .



This little quilt is now going up on Etsy . I't's taken a while to finish , this month's been rather busy . But I've enjoyed making it enormously . Each of the 400 hexagons changing the end result .


And yes , one of my New Year resolutions is to learn how to link properly !

Rachel ... This quilt was 7" x 8"
It's perfect to work on when I'm watching television or doing a crossword . Anything bigger and I'd have to be Organised and put stuff away afterwards . So not me !

It's exquisite! I have no patience with sewing but do so admire people who do and can.. a bit like musicians I find. Happy New year!

It is tiny and so exquisite. I can't imagine working on such a small scale.
