Time to make a fun block. This is a take on the traditional wedding ring block. I made it in an improv fashion using the paper ring as a stabiliser.

Use a combination of strips and triangles as you go around the ring. Then sew the circular pieces to the ring. I tried using fewer pins around the curves for one of the pieces  and it was ok, so lots of pins aren’t necessary though it feels safer.

With pointy triangles and circles a lot of you probably will think this is a hard block.

Don’t despair, foundation piecing is coming to your rescue – at least for the pointy triangles!

And then just get out your pins as you will need quite a few of them to make circle sewing easier.

I wanted to show the paper piecing process really well so you feel you can try it out.

It really pays to learn paper piecing. No block will be too hard once you know how how to paper piece.

These 2 kaleidoscope blocks are quite different.

One is made with foundation piecing and the other one uses 60 degree triangles cut from the same repeat of a strip of fabric.
