Block 27 – Kaleidoscope quilt block – Mysteries Down Under quilt

This is a classic block and one of my favourites.

While it has a lot of points to match, you can apply the 3 feet rule to it – I certainly did for my version :). The rule goes that if you step 3ft away from the block and you can’t see the mismatched points then the block passes 😉

Order 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.
