Kaleidoscope Twist

Welcome to Lucky Duck Dreams!  For my old followers I cant believe its been a month since I have last blogged.  I'm off for the summer and will try to get back to a regular blogging cycle.  I do post very regularly on instagram so you can follow me there.  Check the button on the side.

Today I'm happy to participate in my friend 
Persimon Dreams 52 Twisted Traditional blocks QAL.  

The traditional block I have chosen to twist is an old fashioned Kaleidoscope block.  When I first volunteered for this I immediately thought of a quilt class I took in the 1990s.  I actually twisted the traditional block way back then too.   I called it Crosses and hung it on point.  In the class taught by Sherry Wood we created our own fabric instead of string piecing.  But I twisted the one piece and came out with the above quilt made from 4 blocks.

This finished block has a different look then the first one I made because I placed the triangles differently.  You can really have fun with how the block looks.

There is an interview of me over on
* If you make the block make sure you upload it to the Flickr group:
