Kaleidoscope quilt – one block wonder

Video tutorial: Kaleidoscope quilt - one block wonder - whack and stack

This is one of those things that looks so complicated but nothing could be further from the truth.

To make a kaleidoscope quilt, you only need fabric with a large print and 6 print repeats. Each block is a hexagon and uses 6 triangles.

If you want to make it bigger, then get enough fabric for 12 print repeats or any number in multiples of 6.

You don’t really need a 60 degree ruler. Learn in 2 minutes how to use a regular ruler to cut 60 degree triangles before you start.

But first watch how easy it is to make this quilt.
