Kaleidoscope Baby Quilt

Another quilt done. I made this for my brother's baby girl that will be here in November. I seriously loved making this one. It was something different. I found the pattern here. She originally put circles on hers, but I decided I didn't like that look as much. Plus, I didn't want to cover up my points! They looked too good :)

You use paper templates to cut out the star shapes, then you piece half the square together on a diagonal. Sounds complicated, but it was actually really simple. I think if I were to do it again, I wouldn't do the greens so scrappy. I think it looks better uniform in a solid color. 

The quilting is my favorite part. I tried out this Dogwood quilting pattern, and it ended up being a ton of fun. 

Rounded corners and a pieced back. 


  1. This is beautiful! Absolutely love the pattern - I'm going to have to try that one out myself. :)
