How to make a kaleidoscope quilt

This quilt is made with 60 degree triangles that make hexagon blocks.

All you need is any large print that has 6 repeats, one per 60 degree triangle.

The idea is to stack the repeats of fabric and cut 60 degree triangles out of it. As simple as that.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
