Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 7 Blog Tour

Thank you for visiting Quilt Moments’  blog. I am thrilled that my block appears in the new Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7 hitting newsstands May 7th and it’s fun to be part of the blog tour.  Today I’ll share some ideas on how to use my block and give you a chance to win several goodies.   Keep reading to the end to see what you could win!


My block, Kaleidoscope Star #664, is shown on page 53 of the magazine.  I love using large print fabrics in my quilts and often put what I call “4-patch kaleidoscopes” in my block centers.

I made the block using  the Love Flows collection designed by Jan Douglas for Maywood Studio.  Here are some images of what 5 blocks set on point look like for a 40″ x 40″ tabletopper / wallhanging.

First, here’s what the quilt looks like using the same fabrics shown in the block above.

Next, here is the same setting using brown instead of cream for the background, and changing some of the fabric positions.

Now let’s see the block in a different fabric collection, Garden of Enchantment by Maywood Studio.

The large print shown on the border is what is used for all the 4-patch block centers.
I have many patterns and a book featuring this easy technique which you can see on my website, but
here are the construction highlights:
1) Cut or rip a piece of large print fabric containing at least 4 fabric repeats lengthwise down the middle and save one of these pieces for the wide borders
2) Cut out and layer four identical pieces of the fabric following the design repeat and pin around the perimeter with flathead pins carefully capturing the same motif through all fabric layers
3) Rotary cut strip sets 3-1/2” wide and then sub-cut them into 3-1/2” square sets.
4) Take a square set, and rotate the four identical squares to create a 4-patch kaleidoscope. There are four different rotation options so have fun choosing your favorite look!

Have fun choosing a large print to make your own block.  Florals work great, but you can also have fun using novelty prints and kids’ prints.

I was so inspired by the Love Flows fabric collection while working on my block submission that I made a twin size version of my Trellis Garden (QM116) pattern with the fabric and updated my pattern cover to feature the fabric as shown below.

QM116 Trellis Garden pattern web

Here is an image of a queen size quilt using my Kaleidoscope Symphony design and the Maywood Studio’s Garden of Enchantment fabric line that I showed you above.  Adding easy  “4-patch kaleidoscopes” to the center of blocks is a fun way to spice up your blocks so give it a try!

    Thank you and congratulation for being chosen for this issue.

    I have used your patterns before and I love them, so unique and
    fun. It is such a hard decision, as to my favorite, but I would have
    to say the Triple Twister, as I have the template, and have not
    found a pattern that I would use to use it. Love your kalidescope
    patterns, and thanks for the chance to win!

    I had a head-slap moment when I saw your 100-blocks design. Four-patch square kailedoscopes! I’ve seen them as hexies anad other multi-sided shapes but never squares. I can do that. Guess what I’m off to do right now!
    But not before drooling of the Turning Point pattern…

  369. Celeste Says:

    Thanks for the inspiration – –


  399. Marcia Henderson Says:

    So many choices! But I really liked Ring Toss.

    Twilight Kaleidoscope is also my choice for a pattern. All your blocks are lovely.

    These colors remind me of English garden prints, with a twist. I can think of a few family members that would LOVE these!

  406. Denise Finucane Says:

    Kaleidoscope Symphony is my favourite. I made a 4-patch kaleidoscope by accident once, but hadn’t thought to plan for them!

  407. Kathleen Wood-Kaiser, Zur Hardt 15, 54595 Weinsheim, Germany Says:

    You’ve made so many wonderful patterns, but I think I like tilt-a-whirl best. I’ve only done one kaleidoscope quilt & it’s still in my UFO pile, but you patterns are very inspirational.

    Love yoKaleidoscope Star block! Would be thrilled to win any of your patterns but your book would be my first choice

    Decisions, Decisions, Decisions and the winner is Changing Ways. Patterns *& book are great. Thanks.

  412. patwade Says:

    I love your Celebration pattern for Stonehenge fabrics. I realize that Stonehenge has been designed for use as an accessory with many fabric lines, but I really enjoy using it on it’s own. I think it has a richness that is very grand.

  413. Barbara Watson Says:

    I’ve known for awhile that when you want your borders you should cut the length of them first, but splitting the fabric down the middle is great. Now I can cut correctly for them and fear being short.

  414. deannadodson Says:

    Ooooh, pretty! I love Ribbon Rings and Entwined and Celebration. 😀

  415. Amy M. Says:

    Love seeing the way the design looks in the differing colorways. That is always fascinating to me.. ( and informative)

  421. timberlandsjs Says:

    I love Check out the Stars!

  422. physicsmom Says:

    I’d love to receive your “Kaleidoscope Symphony” book. I’ve used the four-patch kaleidoscope block in several quilts; I love it and it’s so much fun to make. Your patterns, however, take this great block to another level entirely. Thanks for participating in the Blog Hop. I’m so glad I was directed to your site

  423. Trudy Palmateer l Says:

    I currently have my Belle Kaliedoscope entered in the Sauder Village Quilt Show in Archbold, Ohio. I loved the pattern and my quilt turned out so nice I was encouraged By many people to enter it in the show. It’s my first entry in a show and I’m very proud of it. I would love to do another Kaliedoscope block quilt. I would love the Kaliedoscope Symphony pattern if I’m chosen. Thank you and keep the great patterns coming.

  424. Barbara Says:

    Love the purple and green fabrics together.

  425. Carol Kuse Says:

    I am fasinated by some of your versions of your block.

  427. Charlotte Betts Says:

    Love your block….I really enjoyed looking at your patterns. I think that Twilight Kaleidoscope is my favorite.

  428. Amy Lause Says:

    Just LOVE the Tilt-A-Whirl block. It has such a contemporary look. I could totally see this integrated with my Kaffe Fassett and other bright fabrics. Thanks for creating these wonderful blocks!

  429. Jamie Todhunter Says:

    Wow what a lot of great patterns. I had a hard time picking just one, but I think I would like to win the triple twister pattern. Your lock is really great and I like the different examples in the post.

  430. Gwen Sadler Says:

    Absolutely LOVE this block. Thanks for showing the different color ways.

  431. Andrea Harles Says:

    Kaleidoscopes are so much fun

  432. kwiltnkats Says:

    Starlight would be the pattern for me! Thanks for allowing me an opportunity for one of your patterns. Sandi

  433. Donna Bacon Says:

    Love all of your patterns … but afraid they are above my skill level. I really like the very elegant trellis garden, but the Triple twister, I think is the one for me.

  434. Anita Says:

    Love your block 🙂

  435. Robyn Conners Says:

    Oh wow, to choose just one is very difficult, beautiful patterns, but as someone else said they are above my skill level even though I just started quilting and am working on an intermediate level pattern. If I did have to choose just one it would be Ribbon Rings, but I like Catch Me as well. Thanks for the giveaway!

  436. WyoDi Says:

    Among the Stars or Metro, but what a difficult choice.

  437. SoSew Says:

    Like the Kaleidoscope Star block, and the Tilt-A-Whirl pattern looks fun!

  438. Sandy W. Says:

    Tilt A whirl or Check Out the Stars would best suit my skill level. Your purples in the new block are so vibrant. Congratulations on the design.

  439. Carol Deagle Says:

    It is a very nice block. It looks like it would be fun to make

  440. Jude Says:

    Congrats on having your block in a national magazine! It’s a winner!

  441. Katherine Carter Says:

    your block was amazing, what an honor!

  442. Tami Chaulk Says:

    I really like your block and the wall hanging using the Love Flows collection where you used cream for the background. I have several large print fabrics in stash that I received as a gift. As yet, I haven’t found something I want to use them on. I think using your “4-patch kaleidoscopes” in my block centers and borders would make a beautiful quilt. I would love to win Vol 7 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks!

  443. Elaine Says:

    Awesome! Love your block.

  444. Carol Berge Says:

    Love love your block. Congrats for getting in issue #7. Thanks for the chance to win this issue. So looking forward to getting the magazine so I can make your block.

  445. ksl5343Kathy Says:

    I have never attempted the kaleidoscope pattern but reading through your posting has certainly peaked my interest. I would try any of your patterns – they are all so beautiful!

  446. bjhbarb Says:

    Love the colors in the kaleidoscope block!

  447. Carolyn Mills Says:

    I just love the kaleidoscope star, and especially the purple quilt

  448. Karla Says:

    Such beautiful blocks! I have your kit for the Garden of Enchantment quilt but have not started it yet. Every time I see it it still takes my breath away! Your Kaleidoscope Symphony Book would be a lovely addition to my books. I also really love the pattern Elegance #QM121. I am also a lover of large prints. They get swallowed up in some patterns but your patterns make them just say WOW. I have a Quilt Moments Brochure and also really love the pattern that says its on the back of the book – MQ501. Loved your presentation at our guild meeting.

  449. Marcia Lasiter Says:

    Thanks for the chane to win. I really like your Elegance pattern.

  450. Nancy Sue Says:

  452. pat sprengel Says:

    wow, what dramatic settings for this intricate block

  453. Shannon Says:

    I love all of your patterns. The way you make the center block is so pretty. I would like to win all of them but I would like Turning Point. It is so cool. I love your block. Thank you!

  454. ritainalaska Says:

    i like your trellis garden pattern … gorgeous! thanx for the chance to win your pattern.

  455. Carol C Says:

    I used to do the ‘Stack N Whack’ patterns, but have just found this 4 block set and am anxious to get going on it. I bought some beautiful fabric today and excited about this new way to do the kaleidoscope. I really like your pattern Kaleidoscope Star #664 and thank you for an opportunity to take a chance on winning one.
