Christmas Kaleidoscope

Friday, December 10, 2021

 I'm back and today I'm sharing something I'm super excited about!
A new Christmas pattern!  It's called Christmas Kaleidoscope!

It started with this beautiful, scrappy bundle of fabrics.
The reds are mostly wovens and the greens are an assortment
of dark and light greens from different fabric lines.

The white fabric with red stars is from the fabric line, Stars and Stripes
by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake.  That was my background fabric.

Green 4-Patches make up the Holly blocks.

I've paired them with some fun Star blocks to make a really pretty, 
classic Christmas quilt!

Here are some test blocks with a dark background.
Which background fabric do you like better?  I can't decide!

Christmas Kaleidoscope was quilted by Jen Ostler in Highland, UT.
The pantograph I chose was called Sprigs of Holly.  I really like it and think
it goes well with the overall feel of quilt.

Jen always hides a little image in the quilt for her clients to find.
Do you see the little Christmas tree (above)?  Isn't it so cute!?

This pattern is beginner-friendly and I think it's a fun way to incorporate 
red and green into an Irish Chain-style quilt.

Christmas Kaleidoscope comes with instructions for two different
size quilts - lap (48-1/2" x 48-1/2") and full (80-1/2" x 80-1/2").

I've been keeping this quilt at the foot of my bed during the day and snuggling 
under it at night.  It's been so cold here in Utah lately!

Well, that's Christmas Kaleidoscope!
I'd love to hear what you think in the comment section below.

You can purchase the paper pattern from my Etsy shop HERE
or the PDF pattern HERE.

any questions about Christmas Kaleidoscope!
Happy holidays, friends!
