I am so intrigued I am going to have to try these patterns. Any suggestions? Have you had success, where the patterns self explanatory or what area did you find difficult?

I attempted a one block wonder quilt and got bored with it and never finished it. My fabric choice was all wrong so the blocks had no "wow" in them. I applaude you if you give it a go. It was not that it was difficult....a few of the women in the class i tooks blocks turned out great. SOme like mine didn't.
You need to have a block with a packed background and great color differences.
Notice in this link that amazon has this book used (i buy their used books all the time, many times they look brand new)

I just watched a tutorial on how to pick and choose appropriate patterned material, I think that may be the key, also it may be worth it to start with a pillow cover or something small so I know I have chosen the right fabric?? Thanks for the headsup

OHHH,... I LOVE it...looks like something I would like to do! Did you get a chance to start this at one of the retreats you were going to? Want to see it when it is done. Keeping or gifting???

This is one of the nicer kaleidescope patterns that I have seen. I would definitely love to give it a whirl. I will research patterns and thank you for your input!

It's called Keyboard Kaleidoscope. It's from a company in Minnesota called Quilt Moments.

http://www.quiltmoments.com/

Laura. I brought it to the first retreat. I also brought it to the 2nd retreat, but didn't remember I had it because it was in a side pocket of my suitcase. I only found it when I unpacked. I bought the fabric when I first started quilting and didn't quite appreciate the quality fabrics found at the local quilt store. I intend to use it as a 2nd quilt for my bed. Want to have 2 or 3 to change with the seasons. The fabric I have is kind of a fun fabric with parrots on it.
