i've had to type kaleidoscope out so many times since this quilt top, you'd think i'd be able to remember how to spell it by now.
hm. nope Wink
i had all this cat fabric FOREVER... at least since i did the cat lovers swap in 2007. sheesh!
when i started my stashbust project, i pulled all this cat fabric aside to eventually be used for something... and then i stumbled upon this tutorial, and knew it was what had to be used!  originally it said to use paper for the back, but since we have a giant bolt of muslin, i opted to use that as well.


and the back, to show  how it was pieced on muslin.


as usual, larger & more photos on my blog post! http://toothpasteandorangecat.blogspot.com/2013/05/black-white-cats-kaleidoscope-quilt-top.html

I like how it is mostly black and white with just the little bit of blue. Great job.

I love the colors. Huh, I've never heard of a string-pieced quilt called a Kaleidoscope quilt before, the one I'm thinking of has wedge shaped triangles. I like this one better, it doesn't give me a headache like the other pattern!

i might have read the "kaleidoscope" name somewhere else and felt like that's what this should be called...  my pinterest is a hot mess of quilt patterns!  haha
