This queen sized kaleidoscope quilt is the biggest quilt I’ve ever made, and was one of the first ones I attempted years ago. This was a quilt that my mom and I saw hanging in a store and the second I saw it—I knew I had to have it!! Once I started making it, I realized how hard it was going to be to line up all the triangle pieces…UGH!!
In the middle of trying to finish this quilt, years ago before we had kids, I miscarried. I was so devastated. I had so many thoughts running a million miles an hour through my head—it was our second miscarriage over a 2 1/2 year time period and I started to wonder whether we would ever be able to have children. Needless to say, I couldn’t sleep very well and “turn off” all those thoughts. So I decided late one night that I was going to dig into this quilt and finish it—because at least I could say I did something positive during my miscarriage. Sounds crazy, but it helped me get through it—both the quilt, and the miscarriage:)
So here’s my labor of love…
I had someone else machine quilt it for me and then pieced the binding together with different fabrics—my favorite look!!
I love the quilt pattern she chose for the kaleidoscope blocks. It turned out so happy and cheery—and a nice ending to my endurance quilt!!
