WIP - Kaleidoscope quilt #3

I finished almost all 42 blocks, but I'm still debating with myself about final placement. The quilt is too large for my design wall, so I have to work on the floor. I find it quite difficult seeing the whole picture (have to stand on a chair), so it takes much longer.

Here's a sample of 16 blocks, still on the wall. Hope to finish this quilt soon!

WIP Wednesday - Kaleidoscope quilt #2

Work on the kaleidoscope quilt goes quite slowly, by at last I can see some progress, and the pile of blocks is starting to look like something.

I really struggled with this quilt, and I was not happy with any arrangement. It took me some time to find out what needs to be done (more contrast), and now I really like what I see on my design wall. Of course, it's only 12 blocks out of 42, but I think the work is on it's right way.

I used many of my favorites fabrics, so many it's almost a scrap quilt.

I'm linking to these wonderful blogs: Fresh Sewing Day at Lily's Quilts, Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story, Slash the Stash at from the blue chair and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Pop over there to see the great work of some talented quilters!
