80 x 92
Made from lots of scraps and crumbs.
Each 12 inch block is made up of wedges (cut with a kaleidoscope ruler) made up of six 1.5 inch strips...
...and the corners and borders are made of crumbs. For the binding I used binding leftover from other projects.
I ended up quilting each kaleidoscope block with some wobbly circles...they weren't really supposed to be wobbly at first...but my hands are sometimes shaky and my eyes sometimes don't see well so I said the heck with it and went where the quilting, shaky hands and bad eyesight took me. After all, this was made from SCRAPS.
Where the corners of the blocks meet and in the crumby border I quilted some squares, rectangles and wobbly squares and rectangles.
The quilt is a result of last years Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Each month last year I made a block in the RSC color of the month, color of the month plus its complement and color of the month plus the previous month. That way I figured a color-challenged person like me couldn't go wrong.
From the start I had always intended to add a crumb border since I used crumbs for the kaleidoscope corners but I wavered back and forth on it several times. I thought it might look like little kaleidoscope pieces before they form a design...and I guess they do.
This was truly a Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
It's not perfect but its all mine and it makes me smile.
(It made my husband smile too...or was that a laugh?)
Anyway...I'll give it two smiles.
