Beginning of a New Quilt

Yesterday's road trip was successful and, among other things, I found these FQs for the Kaleidoscope Kites Quilt.

Surprisingly since purple is one of my favorite colors, I didn't have any larger pieces in my stash. (I subbed purple for the brown in the original quilt.)  Orange isn't a favorite color and I didn't have anywhere near enough for this quilt.  I was okay on greens... but not light greens...

I got busy and cut all the prints into 6.5" and 3.5" squares... and then decided it might be best to wait til the morning to tackle the white fabric...

To all the moms...  to the mothers of those moms...  and to the grandmothers of those moms... the aunts, godmothers, and mentors to those moms...


  1. The purple's are great and orange isn't my collor too but I'm beginning to value it,green is one of my collors bur I like's the antique versions the most.

  2. I keep seeing more and more common threads (pun intended)...purple is my favorite color also ~ and orange my least. I do love coming here to see your projects take shape.
