Tales from the Dark Side


The color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is indigo. Short of indigo we can use black and gray.   And so I have made 6 eight inch kaleidoscope blocks from 2.5 inch scraps.

Gotta love scrappy - ladybugs, candy corn, chevrons, stripes, flowers, grillwork, and polka dots - all happy together.

Great blocks - they are bright even using dark fabrics. You have a knack for pairing prints.

Very dramatic blocks! Just something about black white and red.

I love this block and am interested in the process you used with 2 1/2 '' strips. Do you have a tutorial to follow? I am thinking you are maybe sewing 2 1/2 '' strips together and using a wedge to cut the shapes.
i have seen many paper piece patterns for this block. Janita

Love the contrast. These will add a real pop to the final quilt.

My gut reaction when I first laid eyes on your blocks was, "Ooo, wow." I'm finding I really like the blocks being made with black!
