I decided to enter the Blogger's Quilt Festival on the last day! This is my Kaleidoscope quilt, a pattern by Becky Goldsmith and was originally named "Everyday Best."
A blogger friend from a block swap posted the quilt made by her mother on her blog and I commented that I really liked it. I didn't ask her for the pattern or anything. A week or so later, the pattern arrived in the mail. I took one look at it and put it in a drawer - saying to myself that I would never make it! As time went by, I would occasionally see it and really liked it, but it would go back in the drawer.
As I was getting ready to retire, we bought a camper so we could do some traveling. I bought a Featherweight to take in the camper so I could sew in the evenings or other times when we were camping. Getting projects to take in the camper, I realized that this quilt would be something that I could do easily with a bag of scraps and wouldn't take up a lot of space, so I started paper piecing the circles while camping. It took a few trips to get the circles finished. I used fabric from my stash for the whole quilt and I'm really glad I made it!
Quilted by me on my domestic sewing machine. It measures 71" square.
