Welcome to Fall 2011 Bloggers' Quilt Festival. I'm so happy you stopped by!
The name of this quilt is California Ice Crystals.
I have always enjoyed kaleidoscope blocks. This quilt was inspired by a single piece of fabric designed by Paula Nadelstern:
All of the blocks were made by placing the kaleidoscope template on the same identical portion of the fabric eight times per block, and then positioning the template in another part of the fabric for the next block.
The spectacular machine quilting was done by my husband's cousin, Ione.
