Did you know that a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope?
That was enough to prompt me to make a quilty kaleidoscope of butterflies to use some of those butterfly fabrics I've been
I've made a couple of different kaleidoscope quilts - one using six 1.5 inch pieces in the wedges and the other using two 2.5 inch pieces in the wedges. Both of those used scraps.
I actually cut into something other than scraps for this kaleidoscope quilt!
These are 10 inch blocks so I'm aiming for an 80 x 80 quilt of 64 blocks.
I'm using dark blue for the corners and alternating blocks with a light X like the above (although top right is questionable)...
...and a dark X like above.
I think I now need 20 more blocks and I'll have enough for my kaleidoscope of butterflies.
Speaking of Butterflies...
I have a couple more to add:
Ghost Moth (I'm actually working on two quilts using this pattern)
Also, remember to leave the milkweeds when you are weeding!
(and tell the husband if you purposely mean to leave one growing in the middle of the lettuce patch he has never ever weeded before in his life).
