Kaleidoscope Stars

It was inevitable. I had to start a new project. And it will be small new project because the fabric I’m using is one I used for the Tiffany Lamp New York Beauty top and is just about gone. But I had to give in. I tried, I really did, to resist making kaleidoscope stars but a series of posts on the All About Inklingo blog did me in.

After finding a suitable fabric in my stash, I prepared two window templates. One for 2″ diamonds.

And one for 3″ diamonds.

Then I began auditioning fabrics and found one that would work for kaleidoscope stars with the 2″ diamonds. Having the window template makes it super easy to fussy cut/print. I had enough 2″ diamonds for 24 kaleidoscope stars printed and cut out in no time.

I was trying to hold off stitching them for a few days, but once the diamonds were all ready to stitch they were irresistible. And I couldn’t make just one.

Or two.

Or three.

Or four.

Finally, after I made the fifth one, I stopped. But not for long. I am going to search through my stash for another fabric that will work for kaleidoscope stars as they are a fabulously fun, fast stitch.
