The first day of each month is Fresh Sewing Day, hosted by Lily's Quilts, where we are invited to share a project from the previous month that made us happy. Though I've worked on several projects this last month that I've really enjoyed, I think overall, my Kaleidoscope has topped them all. I really like the fabrics I chose for this quilt-along, mostly DS prints from my stash. And I really love the grays I added in to coordinate. Though working with the templates was not my favorite part of the project, nor was the excessive ironing due to the centers bubbling, overall I am very pleased with how the quilt is coming along. Here's a pic of it in basting mode.
I changed my quilting plan mid-stream, but am making good progress on it, and am happy with it so far, though it is definitely still a work in progress. I especially(!) like the little 'star' made at the block centers, and those big diamonds between the prints. I won't be doing any more quilting in those, as I like them alot the way they are. So now I'm working on quilting the printed fabric stars - hopefully you can see what I've started.
