I've been working on dresden kaleidoscopes lately. They fascinate me! To make a dresden kaleidoscope you need fabric with enough repeats so you can fussy cut 10 exactly alike blades. then you sew them together and get a dresden plate with a kaleidoscope look.  they are so much fun because you really don't know what they will look like til they are sewn together.

I wrote an ebook on this subject and if it interests you you can find it here for $10.60.
I show how to pick out the right kind of fabric and show some troubleshooting ideas. there are 6 project directions you can use. Plus more info on how to make great dresden kaleidoscopes!

so back to the fun stuff now!  here is a wall hanging I just completed for a wall hanging swap I host on the Quilting Board forum   -

These are some of the dresden kaleidoscopes I have been making. some are already on my etsy site and some will be on there soon.
