The Kaleidoscope UFO
Yippee, this is an oldie! Maybe 20 yrs. have passed since I pieced this quilt top. I had made one of these designs that had too little contrast in the fabrics & it turned out, to my disappointment, very "muddy" looking. I promptly donated it to the GF of one of my sons.
In my tendency for over-reaction I went the other direction & constructed this one with high contrast. A couple of decades later I have no idea what I was thinking then but suffice to say that these would not be my current fabric choices. It does have contrast, that I will admit & I still have in my stash enough of the border fabric for binding-I guess that tells you that my preferences in fabric/color/design have changed in a couple of decades & this quilt no longer fits with my current lifestyle!
This said, I will be pleased to have one more older fabric out of my collection, not to mention another quilt off my UFO list!
I quilted feathers on it because that seemed the most fitting.
Now what on earth am I to do with this kaleidoscope quilt?
