Kaleidoscope Stack & Whack Quilt

ilt (a.k.a. Kaleidoscope Quilt)

This was probably the most interesting quilt I've attempted
It was made in a class that was conducted 
at a quilt store which now no longer exists. 
We used Bethany S. Reynolds' 
Magic Stack-N-Whack Quilts
as our guide and purchased 
all our fabrics and 
tools (ruler) from 
the quilt store.

I chose an oriental theme for a focus fabric.
The repeats in the pattern of the fabric were segmented
and stacked on top of each other six times,
triangles cut from each set of six,
which were then pieced into a hexagon.

The resulting pattern for each
of the 18 hexagons in this quilt is unique.

 I've shown only 6 of them.
 I like the 'movement' in each block.
  The colours are incredible.
 I couldn't stop sewing this quilt because
my expectations kept on building.

It isn't until all the blocks are sewn
that one can appreciate the magic
that is created from one focus fabric.
