I changed my mind

After making another NY beauty block I decided I really DON’T like curves
I then remembered how fun it was to make kaleidoscope blocks and of course started playing with EQ again
I have an EQ kaleidoscope CD and took 16 different  blocks and changed SOMETHING on each of them.
I did two different “looks” I like the blue and yellow the best
kaleidoscope blue yellowkaleidoscope blue yellow2
So here’s the first block
And the second block ( I changed the block after looking at the foundation pieces so it’s not shown above)
I’m doing them all scrappy, I like them!
I also moved the fabrics back in the corner, even though I loved having them on the other shelf, they would be in the morning sun if I didn’t pull the curtains, so now they are in the corner of the room that never gets direct sun
And the scrap bins and Go! dies are back on the other shelves
Sonja was supervising!
Here’s my other daughter Solveig Smile
we just had fun taking lots of pictures in her pretty red dress!

Love it! There are some really cool blocks in this mock-up. And blue and yellow together are always a winner :*)

Beautiful design.

I didn't like the mock up, but I like the actual blocks, maybe because they are softer in color. That's going to be a knock-out quilt.

Those are really pretty! (I might still like the curves better, though)

Your DDs are so cute!
