Kaleido-design meets Flow by Zen Chic

I have had a lot of fun designing and making quilts for my newest class called Kaleido-design. My favourite has to be the medallion style quilt using the line "Flow" by Zen Chic for Moda.  The fabric will be released to stores in March!

I used the Marti Michell Kaleido-Ruler to make the quilt.

I started with the centre medallion, inspired by several mini quilts popping up on Instagram lately.  I was going to stop at thirty six inched and then decided, what the heck, I want a big quilt.

The next round was a block that I picked out of a discarded doodle for a quilt.  The layout was a bust, but this little gem just screamed to be made.

The last round is the simple Kaleidoscope block that we all think of when we think of Kaleidoscope quilts.  I am in love with every part of this quilt.

Recently I taught the class for my local guild.  This is the quilt that Sandy designed and pieced.  I am so impressed with her creativity.

Blocks 3 and 4 are done for the Splendid Sampler Quilt Along.  I am going with a very scrappy quilt, using what is laying around my cutting table as each block comes out.  Block 3 is a mash up of Flow and For You, both by Zen Chic.  Block 4 is a little Me and My Sister fabric, set on a piece of First Crush by Sweetwater.

Linking up with Finish it up Friday.
