Indian Spice Kaleidescope

I made this for my cleaning man’s wife. He was going home to see her and his daughters, back in Kerala. I admire him so much, sacrificing, being away from his family so he can provide home and education for his daughters, and a better future for them. He works so hard, and he misses his family so much. Yes, I sent money, too.

I love Kaleidescopes. Those who think they are a simple block haven’t explored their possibilities – Kaleidescopes provide a great intellectual exercise in color placement and all kinds of repeating techniques to create mood and motion.

    Jamie, I am sorry it took me so long to see your comment. I hadn’t posted recently, so I haven’t checked the blog a lot.

    Thank you for loving my quilts. πŸ™‚ I kind of keep my own council, and try to remember that this is supposed to be FUN. This is what I would wish for you – that you give it a try, and have fun with it. Yes, there are conventions. You are not obligated to follow them. Many a new technique has developed because someone followed her muse. πŸ™‚
