The Kaleidoscope Quilt Along: Fabric Round Up & The Plan

Sooo, about my Kaleidoscope Quilt and the Quilt Along over at Don't Call Me Betsy! Actually, not MINE...Cornelia's. Cornelia's Kaleidoscope Quilt. ;)

I've got my stack of fabrics rounded up and a plan drawn out. This is getting to be LOTs of FUN! Ask my hubby. He's enjoying it just as much, believe it or not. :) Which makes it even OODLES more fun!

This is the stack of fabrics that I'll be using in this quilt for my newborn (she's already 6+ weeks) daughter, Cornelia. Some came from my stash, others I would randomly pick up upon falling in love with them. :)


I was inspired, in part, by Cluck Cluck Sew's "Kaleidoscope" Quilt. The dots mostly, not sure I'm going to use the dots at this point, but I have a general idea of what it may look like this way. Also, the four corners of my blocks will be a coordinating fabric from the same color family, although it doesn't show in this layout.

Here, my hubby is "organizing" my background fabrics (not using a solid, but 8 different patterend grays) by turning the layout into a type of Sudoku Puzzle, which he loves (and I very much do not), bless his heart!

Love the sudoku puzzle connection ;-) The people who color maps for a living actually have a name... they need the same skill.

And yes, SUPER fun when the hubby is involved in the same project with you!

I like your stack and the background grays idea! Wish I could join in some quilting fun... Someday... I have a queen-size scrap pinwheel in 30's repros all cut and ready to piece ~ Tim says it is a Grandma Project.
