I was inspired by the variety of 'patterns within a pattern' seen on
It is Grandma's Surprise
from Joyce Gieszler's book Then and Now Quilts.I used a jelly roll of
Collection for a Cause's Historical Blenders
from Missouri Star Quilt Company
for its muted, greyed-down tones.
Kona Solids' Parchment jelly roll was used for the background.
|I used my favorite paper piecing software, Quilt-Pro's Foundation Factory Kaleidoscope series. |
I chose block #4 out of 150 kaleidoscope blocks. How fun was that? And easy, beasy.
Print your squares any size you want, I chose 6" finished so the finished Grandma's Surprise is 18".
|6" blocks were the perfect size for cutting pieces from my |
using my Triangular ruler.
Think my next one will be black and aqua.
