Completed November 2009

One of my favorite Quilting TV programs, Quilting Arts, had a segment on kaleidoscope quilts a while back. The visiting artist had depicted a vacation in quilt form via photos and a kaleidoscope she had made with a tool called Kaleidoscope Kreator. I was hooked and after many hours of playing with the tool, I created a center block that I liked from a photo out of my garden and printed it out onto EQ Printables fabric. I surrounded the center kaleidoscope with other photo fabric prints from my garden and now I have a memento of some of my favorite plants over the years. It doesn’t show well in the photo, but there are also crystals, beads and a spider sewn onto the center image.
