Video tutorial: Kaleidoscope blocks

Video tutorial: Kaleidoscope quilt blocks

This block gives an impression of curves but all blocks have straight lines. This kaleidoscope block is quick and easy to make and it makes great quilts.

I chose to make this block with paper piecing because it has many points and it’s easier to sew accurately with this technique.

Print the template twice for 1 block. Alternate the colours to make 2 different blocks.
