Kaleidoscopes And Quilts: An Artist’s Journey Continues
Kaleidoscope - the very word promises surprise and magic, chance and change. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscope design organizes an abundance of light, color, form, and motion into a complex and coherent image, capturing a moment of infinity. This book is jammed with how-to's and why-not's, process and product, and an abundance of text and photos that explains elements of design and technique for creating the multifaceted, luminous, and random nature of a kaleidoscope's interior on the flat surface of a quilt.
The kaleidoscope configuration and its symmetrical repetition allows the quiltmaker to explore a variety of design possibilities using intricately printed fabric. With Paula as your guide, you will find that making kaleidoscope quilts is like making magic with fabric.
