Another Kaleidoscope Quilt

Just a few quick pictures of the latest customer quilt.  This must be my fourth or fifth kaleidoscope quilt so far.  When the local quilt shop has a class I know that I will be seeing a few of the finished tops!

This one is done a deep rose pink with mint green sashing.

I outlined all the mint green sashing with MonoPoly clear thread including the little 9-patch in the sashing and the stars.  This monofilament thread from Superior Threads is soft and a dream to work with on the long-arm and my Janome.  A topstitch needle and a bit looser tension is all that is needed.

A large meander around the stars, a little continuous curve in the stars and some fantasy feathers using King Tut #952 Wild Rose in the border completed this quilt.

OK – now only 14 more tops to go!

    • Hi Jan,
      Fantasy Feathers are just the name I gave to the casual ‘feather’ type of quilting that I did in the border area. It’s based on Dawn Rameriz (sp?) style. If you check my previous blog ‘Mosaic Magic’ you can see them done edge-to-edge. Thanks for the comment 🙂
