Mini Kaleidoscope Quilts



Hello! It's parade day! (February already?) First, I'd like to announce our mini quilt for the March 1st parade. How about a mini Jumping Jacks quilt? Last summer I made the full-size version and have been wanting to make the mini version by Fig Tree ever since.  So when Sinta suggested it as an option I seconded the idea! I'll be sewing along with you this month...as soon as I decide what fabrics to use. You can find the downloadable pattern here or the paper version here.  Okay...now for some Kaleidoscope mini quilts!






 First up is Cynthia's gorgeous version...so scrappy and fun!



 And then Dawn made her beautiful mini with Up Parasol fabrics...I love this one too!


 Jodi made her mini into a beautiful pillow...ready for Christmas next year!


 And I love the jewel tones Judith used!


Finally, Mindy made this lovely Fig Tree version...beautiful! Be sure to stop by Sinta's blog to see the rest of the lovely kaleidoscope quilts! And if you didn't make one but want to after seeing these...Julia's tutorial can be found here at My Rainboots are Red.

Thanks so much for sewing along everyone! And thanks so much for stopping by today!

They're all so beautiful, and each one is so different :)

They are all beautiful but I can't see mine. I know I send it to you (two times) but I can send it again and I've already posted it on flickr

Now off to mini Jumping Jack:-)

I love them all! This technique was a little challenging for sure. I am glad I did it. My husband who usually can find the 'block' in my quilts is still trying to find the block in this one. I love the jumping jack pattern! I purchased it a while a go but put it on the back burner for one reason or another. Now I will be able to put it on top of my list.

Wow -- they're all beautiful! It's fun to see how different they look with the use of light and dark fabrics!
