Kaleidoscope for Luca
Luca is my a nephew, and will be 1 1/2 years old when he gets this. On the left is my focus fabric, and I pulled the colors to make another Kaleidoscope Quilt. Each block will have the same colors, but in different order - that will be interesting. As is often the case, the focus fabric may not be usable on the front as a border -- I'll have to wait and see -- but will be perfect on the back.
How could any block have more color? This should keep him active! LOL
FYI - Any time one uses 5, or 7, or 9 fabrics (an odd number) the middle fabric (red/orange strip) will almost make a circle in the block, and or become very prominent. However, one can cut blocks for several wedges and mix up the wedges to add more variety.
