Kaleidoscope Quilt Along Finish

I did it!  I finished my Kaleidoscope Quilt on time with the quilt along.  But more importantly, I have a something to share that's not just a block!  Aren't you excited!?! 

I must say I LOVED making this quilt!  Elizabeth's instructions were so super clear and the pieces all went together so fast.  I'm thinking of making the baby sized one to have on hand (unless I decide my son needs more quilts!)  If you were thinking of ever making a Kaleidoscope Quilt I highly recommend using Elizabeth's Quilt Along (you can make it at your own pace at any time)

I used my loved Amy Butler Soul Blossoms stash for this quilt.  It was hard to cut it up, but I think this is my most favorite quilt ever so that makes it all worth it!  I decided to have the centers of my pieces all the same.  It gave the quilt a little order.

I was going to use one of the rows and make a pieced back, but then decided to use it to add some extra length.  I'm really tall and I like my quilts to cover my toes but also cover my shoulders when I'm stretched out.  This quilt does that AND there's still room to spare!  PERFECT!!

For the back and binding I just used some solids.  The back is a greenish blue (matches part of the Soul Blossoms line wonderfully)  I used a BRIGHT pink solid for the binding.  I love the pop it gives against that back and the white on the front.

I love the way all the fabrics (including the back and binding) work together - perhaps it's because the top all comes from one range!

A very inspiring lesson in colour play, thank you.
