  1. These are beautiful, especially love the Brooklyn Bridge quilt. Thanks for visiting Buttercupland.

  2. They are all so beautiful. I like the great roundup.

    Suzy Someday Somewhere Letter K

  3. Such detailed work--Wow!
    Love them all. But 'the great round up' and 'shards' seem hypnotic.

  4. I had a kaleidoscope when I was little. These replicate the feeling so well!

    The Multicolored Diary

  5. Fascinating designs. I especially like Caribbean blue.

  6. They have that kaleidoscope visual - wow an amazing art
    Happy Monday.
    The letter K

  7. The amount of detail in these pieces is simply amazing. No favourite, I like them all!

    K is for ...

  8. Wow! This is so intricate.. Carribean Blues is wonderful but then so are the others.. Superb!

  9. Très interessant, très captivant visuellement. Je suis fasciné par XXXI The other side of the circle. Est-ce que tu sais quelle technique elle utilise le plus souvent; fait main, appliqué, machine? C'est génial ce qu'elle fait. Elle doit être très fort en math. ;^)

    1. Oui c'est assez spectaculaire ! J'ai 4 livres écrits par elle, et tout se fait à la machine. Il est beaucoup question d'angles, 45°, 60°, et de dessins sur papier graphique. Un peu compliqué au début, mais avec un peu d'entraînement ça doit aller ;-)

  10. Amazing! Love the one with opals (the one that looks like a peacock feather) and the bridge one.

  11. How fascinating!
    As a kid I had a kaleidoscope, and I loved it. So magical!

    My K is for Kuhfladen, which translates as cow pie ;-) But you have visited and found out about it already. Sorry to have disappointed you!

  12. Once again I am stunned by the quilting artistry you are sharing with us! Thanks and I'll see you tomorrow!

  13. This is truly a work of art . Stunning !

  14. Truly remarkable quilts! Quite beautiful.

  15. These are so beautiful. Such detailed work of art. Thanks for sharing.

  16. One word, intimidating. Compass blocks and these you've posted today are a goal, but not right now. lol

  17. Yet another astoundingly talented fabric artist. She really knows what she's doing with colors and designs!

  18. I love looking through Kaleidoscopes!
    This also reminds me of the song Kaleidoscope by A Great Big World.

    K is for Kale

  19. These designs bring back happy childhood memories of getting a kaleidoscope in my Christmas stocking every year!

  20. Those are gorgeous. We had a friend who used to paint mandalas with those effects.

  21. It must be so fun to design these type of quilts. They're all beautiful but I'd have to go with Kaleidoscopic XXXIII: Shards as my favorite from this group. Weekends In Maine

  22. Gorgeous! I have NO talent for sewing.

  23. merci pour cette belle découverte,c'est vraiment très beau

  24. I like the geometric patterns. They almost seem like fractals...

  25. To weave these complex patterns is quite an achievement indeed. They look absolutely intricate.

  26. Thanks for Bringing us Ms Paula. Frederique. Kaleidoscopic theme is certainly a unique ability to master.
    Apologies for late response
